Flashlight Parade

With a little sadness but with many happy memories, Tucson's Birthday month came to a close with a Flashlight Parade.

We met at the foot of A mountain at sundown and walked along a luminaria-lined path to the multi-use trail that runs along the Santa Cruz and found the De Anza trail that includes trail-side attractions to educate walkers. Did you know that the Tohono O'Odham helped to build San Franscisco?

Walkers decorated flashlights and at the end of the walk voting commenced and the winning flashlight was chosen. Here is a picture of our winner, Sylvia, and her flashlight. She decorated it to honor her Norwegian heritage.

Thank you to everyone who participated in making Tucson's birthday so special. I LOVE Tucson, and it was fantastic to be around so many others who love Tucson too.
