Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- This October, Pineapple Arts in Duluth is hosting all-ages craft sessions every Sunday in preparation for upcoming All Souls Night.

The event also known as the Day of the Dead is in it's sixth year here in Duluth.

All souls night uses a colorful skull and bones motif to celebrate the memory and spirit of those people and animals who have passed on.

This year's event begins with a family friendly evening at the Duluth Depot from 6pm to 8pm, followed by a 21 and older music and art show at Sacred Heart Music Center.

"All Souls Night is an event that begins with some mourning and grieving for our loved ones that might have left us, but by the end of the evening it's more celebratory of all kinds of life," says Artistic Director of the event Mary Plaster.

The event takes place November 2nd. Organizers are also making a point to honor Duluth community activist Steve O'Neil who passed away in July.
