Every once in a while Tucson surprises me and I realize what a cool town it is. It’s probably not the most exciting place to live by a lot of people’s standards but my town has a lot of character. An event I had heard a lot about but never attended is the annual All Souls Procession that takes place downtown. The word is it grows every year and that this year’s turnout was estimated around 20K – not too bad for a Sunday night in the Old Pueblo. The processions starts on 4th Avenue and ends up downtown where a stage is set up and they put on a very cool show. I will definitely be going every year from now on.
People go all out for the procession with costumes, face paintings, and even floats. We only walked the downtown portion of the event and I decided to try out the bride outfit a lot of people suggested for Halloween. My outfit turned a few heads.
