Dia de los Muertos Celebration at the PNA

Thanks to our neighbors at Parsons Public Relations for this post on their blog:

Parsons Public Relations is fortunate to be located across the street from one of Seattle’s most prominent community centers, the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA).

Crowds of people from the neighborhood were gathered in the street watching music and dance performances and honoring this traditional Mexican celebration of life and death.
