ALL SOULS PROCESSION BRINGS MILLIONS TO ECONOMY
TUCSON – The All Souls Procession brought 100,000 visitors Downtown and was a big boost to business, according to organizers.
Last year, the event paid for an economic impact study. That study showed the event brought $17,550,000 to the local economy.
The Procession worked its way through Downtown and ended at the Mercado San Augustin.
Many of the participants and spectators are from out of town.
The closing ceremony, police and barricades cost thousands of dollars. Volunteers collect donations along the route. But every year, the event has to raise other funds. People can donate online at AllSoulsProcession.org.
