NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — On Sunday, November 26th The Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic successfully culminated its seven-day immersive experience in Times Square, as part of its winter “Change the Season” Campaign. The interactive installation closed with a celebratory ceremony presided by Mr. David Collado, Minister of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, Ydanis Ramirez, New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner, Congressman Adriano Espaillat, Mr. David Llibre, President of ASONAHORES, government officials, private sector guests and business leaders representing the Dominican tourism industry.
For the Ministry of Tourism, it was a true privilege to bring the warmth and beauty of the Dominican Republic to the iconic Times Square. “This activation allowed us to showcase the unique facets of our culture and invite visitors from around the world to explore our diverse landscapes, rich cuisine, beautiful beaches, and unparalleled hospitality,” said Mr. David Collado Morales, Minister of Tourism for the Dominican Republic.
The Dominican Republic’s pop-up experience in Times Square invited New Yorkers and tourists alike to escape the cold and immerse themselves in the culture, music, and culinary flavors of the Dominican Republic.
The installation was an enclosed dome that brought to life the best of Dominican culture both inside and outside of activation. As a cultural representation, guests enjoyed traditional Dominican Carnival performers, folkloric ballet and various music groups with traditional dances. Over the course of the activation, renowned Dominican artist Angurria, adorned the dome by painting a vibrant mural, capturing the spirit of Dominican culture and traditions.

Additionally, visitors learned about the variety of travel experiences that the Dominican Republic has to offer in all its different destinations.
