“MMOS’s flagship event began as an individual performance piece by Tucson artist, Susan Johnson in 1990. Today All Souls has now become one of the most authentic public ceremonies in North America today. Over 150,000 people from all walks of life come together every fall in Downtown Tucson to commemorate, honor, mourn and celebrate the passing of our ancestors and loved ones.
In the months leading up to the Procession, free, family-friendly workshops are offered to the public. In addition, MMOS gives people the opportunity to experience the event through projects like the Urn and Video Ancestry Project.”

You could even dress up as Cinderella to go to the ball (with cardboard instead of glass slippers?) and design a cardboard pumpkin carriage. There were lots of amazing costumes and gear at last year’s ball. Be daring and creative.

Where were these big thinkers from the 18th century spotted? At The Congress, of course.
They fought for our right to vote… so do it!
