All Souls Procession This Weekend

The 28th annual All Souls Procession, one of Tucson's signature events, will be held Sunday, Nov. 5.

Gathering begins at the starting point at 4 p.m, while the procession begins at 6 p.m. The new route this year starts at West Speedway Boulevard and North Grande Avenue, proceeds south through Barrio Hollywood and the Menlo Park neighborhood, ending at the Mercado San Agustín on West Congress.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to be in costumes and skeleton face paint to honor the dead. This year, the musical finale will be performed by 50 Tucson Symphony Orchestra (TSO) musicians, led by José Luis Gomez, the new music director of the TSO.

Organized by Many Mouths One Stomach, a nonprofit arts collective, the free All Souls event draws participants from across the country and the world. Click link for more information about travel restrictions and parking availability.
