Tucson Puppet Works hosts FREE weekly workshops on Mask and Puppet-Making in preparation for the Parade. Participants are welcome to make a mask, big-head puppet, or human-powered float. No experience is required. Wear clothes that can get dirty. Kids 14 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Little Angels is a family-friendly event acknowledging and celebrating deceased loved ones from the perspective of the child. Children participate in art activities such as wing-making and decorating, face painting, sugar skull decorating, story telling, and theater. The public is invited to bring photos and drawings of their children’s deceased loved ones: pets, family and friends. We will scan them on site and project them large on the library wall. Bring a candle in a container to illuminate the children’s procession as the sun sets.

The Procession is still in debt $8,500- $5,000 of which pays for Tucson Police Department. Due to the increasing size of the Procession, a working relationship between TPD and MMOS was established in 2006. We have since been pursuing ways to better manage the infrastructure of the Procession Weekend, and for it to grow in the healthiest way possible…
