All Souls Procession This Weekend

One of Tucson's signature events happens Sunday, as the 26th annual All Souls Procession makes its way through Downtown Tucson to Mercado San Agustin. Thousands of people are expected in costumes and skeleton face paint to honor the dead. The procession will stage at 4 p.m. at Sixth Avenue and Seventh Street. Even though the big event starts Sunday at approximately 6:30 p.m., activities begin tomorrow with the Procession of Little Angels, 3-7 p.m., at Armory Park, 221 S. 6th Ave.

Organized by Many Mouths One Stomach, a nonprofit arts collective, the free event draws participants from across the country and the world. Parking is available at the garages downtown, or you can take the Sun Link streetcar to the downtown area from the University of Arizona, 4th Avenue, or Mercado San Agustin (just west of downtown). For this Sunday only, the streetcar will run until 11 p.m.

Please be aware of traffic restrictions in the area.
