|Before I went to bed on Halloween, I was still lucid enough to take a nice bathroom seflie of my costume makeup (even if it had got a bit smudgy).|
What is the All Souls Procession? It's a Tucson tradition and take on Dia de los Muertos, that honors both Mexican and native cultural notions of mourning and remembering the dead. Despite the grim connotations, the Procession is really just a huge parade, with music, performers, and everyday people who dress up and participate in the fun. This year it took place on November 3rd, and the weather was absolutely perfect for the event.
I went with my friend Hollie, and it was both of our first times at the Procession. We wound up having tons of fun and got to see some very interesting people.
