Annual All Souls Procession ~

Each year Tucson hosts an amazing celebration of life by honoring the dead - the All Souls Procession. Organizers estimated that more than 30,000 people participated in this year's event held on Sunday, November 4. The parade moved through downtown Tucson and culminated in a moving fire ceremony where participants burn names on paper in a giant urn.

People honor loved ones in their family as well as notable individuals who have made world contributions (Neil Armstrong was honored this year with an oustanding float). I'll be posting several more fabulous photos of these festivities over the next few days so do check back!
