19th Annual El Día de San Juan Fiesta Set for Tomorrow

The annual tradition of celebrating the beginning of monsoon rain is tomorrow from 5-10 p.m. at Mercado San Agustin, west of Interstate 10 at the southwest corner of Congress Street and Avenida del Convento.

Local tradition hails St. John the Baptist as the one who brings the rain, kicking off the monsoon in Tucson. The free El Día de San Juan Fiesta will feature a procession, live music and dance, food, arts and crafts, games, activities for children, and an outdoor screening of the movie "Rango" (presented by The Loft Cinema) at 7:30 p.m.
