Halloween Weekend 2015 Festivities

We’ve got an action packed weekend coming up with fun stuff going on at both locations. Here’s more…

Day of the Dead Observance – Friday, October 30 & Sunday, November 1

Join us for the largest, longest running and most authentic Day of the Dead celebration in the heart of the Wasatch!

Blue Iguana will have live entertainment at both the Salt Lake and Park City locations on Friday, October 30th. Yes, we know that Sunday is the official day but we want to make sure you all can celebrate with us and we’ve chosen to mark the day on Friday.

History

The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday centered on remembering friends and family who have passed. It’s a time to gather with family and friends, to celebrate the lives of loved ones and to honor their history. The skull has become a popular visual for the day, sugar skull painted faces and/or masks are often wore as part of the traditional observance.

Blue Iguana, now in our 18th year, and known for our authentic, old world Mexican cuisine, invites you to join our festive atmosphere as we honor an age old Mexican tradition. The Day of the Dead festivities are a long running tradition here at Blue Iguana and an important part of our staff and family culture.

While You’re Here

Drop in to partake in the fun. See the restaurant transform into an ofrenda. Join our servers in traditional attire and face paint (face painting will be available to the public at our Salt Lake location). Try our award winning Iguanarita – our spin on the classic margarita – and enjoy one of more than a dozen “Holy Moles” perfected by Chefs Manuel Castillo and Antonio Cardenas. Blue Iguana server with face painted in recognition of Day of the Dead 2014

Halloween 2015 – Saturday, October 31

The Halloween festivities on Park City’s Main Street make Blue Iguana a great place to celebrate Halloween. Main Street is closed for a community-wide trick-or-treat up and down the street. Come in your costume and check out all the Park City events, including a Howl-O-Ween dog parade.

Of course the fun isn’t just in Park City. Our Salt Lake staff partakes too! We’re handing out candy during business hours and our staff will be in costume as well. You’re welcome to come in dressed-up, trick-or-treat!

Hope to see you this weekend!
