Officials from The Outlets at Castle Rock estimate about 80,000 people shopped at the mall's Black Friday event, Moonlight Madness Shopping.
The outlets opened at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, and remained open until 9 p.m. on Nov. 25. Entertainment included jugglers, balloon artists, music and a dance floor.
The outlets began hosting Moonlight Madness in 2007. This year's Black Friday turnout was up from 2015, a spokeswoman for the shopping center said. Although a number was not available, last year's Moonlight Madness attendance was hindered by cold temperatures and snow around the holiday, according to the spokeswoman.
Top-selling items this year were outerwear, shoes and bags, she said.
