The All Souls Procession in Tucson, Arizona has become a tradition. Over 35,000 participants will fill the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long human powered procession that ends in the finalizing action of burning a large urn filed with the hopes, offerings, and wishes of the public for those who have passed.
Inside this event you will find varieties of installation art, altars, performers, and so much more. Some of these projects are designed throughout the year and prepared just for this amazing event.
This is not a “stand by and watch” parade. Everyone is invited to come on the walk and bring whatever your spirit wants to create. Put it on wheels, strap it to your back, wear it, put lights on it, walk it or ride it—but do keep it under 10 feet tall or make it so it can be lowered and raised again to get under the low clearance areas.
The gathering time is 4:00 PM on N 6th Avenue north of the underpass and south of 6th Street (about 400 N 6th Avenue). The parade will leave at 6:00 PM and proceed South on 6th Avenue to Alameda and turn right. It goes directly west on Alameda and will wrap onto Congress and go West to Mercado San Agustin.
The Grand Finale will be held at Mercado San Augstin on West Congress. Flam Chen and multitude of performers will be on hand to entertain. This year’s musical guests are: A Tribe Called Red, Danza Azteca Calpulli Tonantzin, The Carpetbag Brigade, and Nemcatacoa Teatro.
Come down to Tucson on Sunday, November 3, 2013 and experience a whole new tradition!
