REGISTRATION for Procession–not required but often helpful if you have a bigger project in size, sounds (i.e a band) or people.
Registration is meant to simply make sure musical groups are aware of their placement in relation to other musical groups (for obvious reasons) and proximity to other (non-musical) projects that may heighten the wonderful experience of the myriad of spontaneous collaborations that happen. This year– floats, moving installations, bands etc will have a separate path into the finale grounds so that we can better accommodate the flow of the finale experience-look for more details…

Look for the Donation Hats and our Army of Barkers who are helping us collect donations from you to support this magnanimous event!!
As organizers of the Procession, our priority is always quality of experience over quantity of participants, and though the Procession has grown exponentially, we will always strive to propagate an “ALL SOULS PROCESSION” that is a grassroots, non-commercial, hyper-inclusive, sacred event dedicated to honoring our ancestors and loved ones who have passed on.
ASP ROUGH GUIDE
DO: Come and enjoy the experience in a way that works for you. Dress up, get out of your regular regiment and persona; make a mask, a puppet, an art installation, an altar; some way of honoring those who have gone before, who we remember, honor, release, and embrace. Allow yourself to flow into an experience of real community, where we interact in ways that are different, authentic to our nature, and open to our feelings.
DON’T: Be high, drunk, or in anyone’s space in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable. This event should be safe to bring a newborn infant to, or your dear aging grandmother. What allows the magic to happen is for everyone to feel safe. It is your job to create this kind of space. The moment we require help from police or any other authority to make sure that happens, we have lost something truly precious. Please make sure to honor barricades, civilian security and civic event staff at grand finale and take care for yourself and your fellow participants in stepping off of curbs, crossing streets, train tracks and trolley tracks etc.
