Re: a99: The All Souls Procession

I don't really understand all the culture, but it appears to be an annual event for All Soul's Day which marks remembrance of those who have passed (which is why you see a lot of photos in the crowds).  Anyone can march in the ceremony. It appears to have started here in Tucson in 1990.  It's a 2 mile march.  The roots come from Mexico's Dia de los Muertos.  It's supposed to be a celebration and mourning for loved ones that have passed.
