2011 All Souls Procession (Tucson) videos

I only took still photos of the All Souls Procession for my blog this year, so I went looking on YouTube to find a couple of videos to share more of the look and feel of this great event.

Here is a great video by T. Stone of the 2011 All Souls Procession that includes some great shots of finale firedancers:

This is another person's short video of the portion of the finale where the urn (people placed remembrance notes/messages in it earlier as it was pulled along the Procession route) is lit on fire. This year there were three aerialists suspended from the crane including a silk performance artist.

And a more distant video of the urn lighting by Johnnyangelb that shows the height of the crane:


  1. That first video is fantastic; the second somewhat scary.

  2. @Bruce -- very true, its amazing what they do with high lift cranes during the finale every year! I think it must be a very unique and cool experience for the crane operators too -- quite a bit different than moving construction materials!

    Don't know if you've seen this, but here is a link to a daytime rehearsal of last year's crane routine:
