The Outlet Collection Seattle host its upcoming fall celebration, Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), on Friday, Nov. 1, 4 to 8 p.m. at the Auburn mall.

Guests of all backgrounds are invited to experience this traditional Mexican holiday while also learning about its cultural significance. Día de los Muertos will include a Calaveras decorating contest, dancers, live music, entertainment by Erazno y la Chokolata, kids activities, traditional food and more.

“At The Outlet Collection, we believe in the importance of embracing the diversity and multicultural backgrounds of our guests,” said Christian Faltenberger, general manage of The Outlet Collection. “We are looking forward to creating a truly authentic holiday event, in partnership with Bustos Media and celebrating with Auburn’s Latino community.”

In traditional Mexican culture, it is believed that on Día de los Muertos, the border between the physical world and the spiritual world dissolves. Families and friends spend this holiday honoring their loved ones who have passed away and celebrating their ancestors.
