Halloween Casa de CampoWhen living in the Dominican Republic, there comes a point when some things are most accurately described in Spanish – or even Dominican, and in this case the expression “¡mortal!” is very definitely the most suitable way to describe the Casa de Campo Halloween Party celebrated on Sunday the 3rd of November.

Halloween Casa de Campo[ “¡Mortal!” is used to describe something really really awesome.]

The Casa de Campo Halloween Party, sponsored by Casa de Campo Living, TODO Casa de Campo magazine and Chivas Regal 12, took place at the Casa de Campo Yacht Club in the Marina Casa de Campo, and was organised by party-planning legends: Patricia Proano, Ivonna Sosa, Tato Caceres, Miguelin, Amelia Pereya and Gricelle Lahoz.

As bewitching hour arrived, Casa de Campo’s ghosts, ghouls, jellyfish, gods, goddesses, superheros, pirates, insects and fitness fanatics crossed the threshold of the graveyard and into the haunted house.

Halloween Casa de CampoWithin the dungeon, lit in eery red, bats flew from the rafters, tarantulas crawled across the furniture and a coffin stood hauntingly in a the corner. The scene was set for the perfect night(mare)… and as the horror unfolded more and more monsters rose from the dead and came out to shake their bones.

The midnight howling of the party echoed out so loud and clear across the resort, that even actor Frank Perozo, whose staying in Casa de Campo for the filming of new movie “La Extraña”, joined the dance of the dead.

“The party was amazing! For the food this year, we brought a ‘carrito de sandwiches de pierna’ (a cart with pork sandwiches) from town (La Romana), they were to die for!

We would like to send a special thank you to Suplidora Lahoz, El Catador, JR & Co., TODO Casa de Campo, Costasur News and Casa de Campo Living.

And thank you to all who supported us this year, we hope you had as much fun as we did!”

— Patricia Proaño, one of the party organisers
