The Best Photos from the All Souls Procession

Thousands of Tucsonans gathered Sunday night to participate in the All Souls Procession, where they mourned their lost loved ones.

The All Souls Procession is perhaps one of the most important, inclusive and authentic public ceremonies in North America today.

Over 150,000 participants walk the streets of Tucson for a two-mile long human-powered procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes for those who have passed.

Myriad altars, performers, installation art, and creatives of all kinds collaborate for almost half the year to prepare their offerings for this amazing event.

Take a look at some of the photos captured by participants at this year's All Souls Procession.
