All Souls Procession Has New Route

The All Souls Procession is an amazing event, with thousands of people walking through the streets of Tucson remembering their dearly departed, be they grandparents, pets, the planet Pluto, migrants, jaguars, scientific inquiry or civil discourse. It's a folk art extravaganza where people wear home-made costumes and ride floats out of bicycles or carts. Some people wear giant paper mache heads carried high above the crowd on back pack frames. Others work together to create a multi-bodied creature. There are bands, bagpipes, stilt walkers and a wonderful feeling of community. 

The Procession will begin around 6:00 PM Sunday, November 5. It used to begin on Fourth Avenue, but this year the start of the route will be on Grande south of Speedway. But don't go there. It will be way too crowded. Find a place along the route, and after it has passed, follow it to the Convento for a concert by the Tucson Symphony and the burning of the prayers and hopes you put in the beautiful big urn. You can't miss this.
