Little Angels is a family 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. Finale workshops are offered so that the children can participate in their own Procession/Finale-Spectacle. Angels on stilts lead the children on a procession around the Downtown public square to the finale stage area, where artists present a live performance-spectacle.
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.Following the Little Angels Finale, the Spoken Word Soul Poetry begins…
Additionally with the huge success of the 2nd Annual Tucson Circus Arts Summer camp we are hosting children’s and youth stilt workshops that will be focused on helping to create the Little Angels Finale at the event
Every Sunday in September and October at 5 p.m. * Mansfield Park
