All Souls Procession: Procession of Little Angels
Venue: Armory Park
Time: From: 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Admission: Free to attend, but donations help defray the cost of art supplies, permits, and infrastructure.
The day before the big Procession, a small Procession takes place in Armory Park. The park fills with children and families, gathering to paint wings, create paper flowers, get their faces painted, dress in costumes created at our kids costuming workshops, and approach grief from a child-friendly, child-driven place. Stories that Soar! and Tucson Circus Artsstudents team up to perform local childrens stories about death and grief, and as the sun sets, everyone processes around the park.
All ages are welcome. Throughout the park, shrines to remember the dead have been set up by people who want to memorialize someone, as the Personal Altars Vigil takes place in conjunction with Little Angels. And everyone is welcome to place a remembrance of a child on the Childrens Altar.
