The Transformation of the Rehoboth Mall for Sundance 2017
When the doors open at the Rehoboth Mall this Labor Day weekend, there’s no question that the huge empty space will again be transformed into another spectacular site for CAMP Rehoboth’s biggest party of the year. “We thought the space would only be available for last year’s event,” says Sundance co-chair and designer Murray Archibald, “and with the RB Convention Center still not available to us, we are very grateful that The Cordish Company is again making it possible for us to have a space big enough to house an event the size of Sundance.” Construction for a new tenent in the atrium at the Mall will begin in earnest the day after Sundance wraps up production.
