Catrinas Festival 2022 Celebrating the Day of the Dead
El Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is not a Mexican version of Halloween. Though related, the two annual events differ greatly in traditions and tone. Day of the Dead festivities unfold over days of explosions of color and life-affirming joy. The theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members and to honor their legacies.
This year, for the first time in Seattle, you can join in the festivities too! The Catrinas Festival 2022, celebrating the Day of the Dead, will be held from Oct. 26 through Nov. 2 at Club Sur at 2901 First Ave. S.
