Every historic town has its ghosts and Mount Dora is no exception. On October 29 they will come out in force along with zombies, vampires and French maids and descend into foggy Sunset Park.
"Mayhem in Mount Dora," an annual street party presented by Pisces Rising, transforms downtown into a ghoulish scene for party-goers while they enjoy live music, amazing food and lively libations. This year the theme is "Day of the Dead". Musical guests will be the Sonic Gypsies.
This is the third year the restaurant has undertaken the event that strives to bring people from surrounding areas into downtown. In addition to the haunting spectacle of sugar skulls, there is also a photo booth and a costume contest with a $500 grand prize (the entry fee is five dollars).
The party starts at 6 p.m. and rages until 11 p.m. Admission is free.
