Every year in Tucson, the weekend after the Day of the Dead (Nov. 1st) there is a huge parade downtown. Anyone can walk in the parade or watch. People dress up, anything from skeleton costumes to their Halloween costumes. This was the first year we went. We didn't dress up, but we did bring Simon and walk in the parade. It was so much fun!
When things got crazy or Simon got tired Michael and I switched off holding him. He got way more attention when we held him, but man he gets heavy after awhile.
When it was all over we had walked more than 3 miles and saw a lot of interesting people. We were all tired and had to pee (there were 2 porta potties for all 10,000 people), but this will definitely be a family tradition that we will do as long as we live in Tucson.
