In the season of all things spooky and creepy, CityArts Factory is bringing a twist to downtown’s Third Thursday Gallery Hop with its eighth annual Dia de los Muertos & Monster Factory exhibit. Although the exhibit runs until Friday, Nov. 10, the opening night’s block party is where the real fun happens. This unique event features artwork inspired by Halloween and the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday from local and international artists. Salvador Live demonstrates a live speed and action painting show – with breakdancing. Phantasmagoria’s acrobatic contortions might make you cringe, but you’ll be awestruck by their macabre cirque performance. Among all the action, the Tamale Co. food truck will help the monsters rumbling in your stomach under control with their fresh, authentic servings.

6-11 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19 | through Nov. 10 | CityArts Factory, 29 S. Orange Ave. | orlandoslice.com | $5 suggested donation
