Tips from the community

Begun in the artist community more than three decades ago, the All Souls Procession is not exclusively a Day of the Dead parade, but it is a strong component of the parade. The two-mile All Souls Procession features a giant urn where parade-goers can place their paper messages before they are burned at the conclusion of the parade. Coordinated by nonprofit Many Mouths One Stomach, the event on November 6, 2022 includes the Ancestors Project in which photos of loved ones are projected during the finale.
