All Soul's Procession

Tucson's famous All Soul's Procession is this evening! 
Starting at 6:00pm in front of Epic Cafe, the huge (Over 15,000 last year)  human procession winds it's way through downtown Tucson, ending with a celebration that includes music, pyrotechnics, and the burning of the urn of offerings, where people's wishes and prayers go up in smoke, symbolizing release into the void.
Read about the history of this amazing event here as well as the official website here.
