Noche de Luz Flashlight Parade

Photos by Jon & Patti Scanlon

KOLD Channel 13 stopped by!

Tucson's Birthday Ambassadors Jon and Shari compete in the flashlight decorating competition.

Kasi reads a marker about how the Hohokam used acequias in developing their ancient agricultural community along the Santa Cruz river at the foot of "A" mountain. Other paraders are studying the demonstration acequia at the site. Farther along the trail is a marker telling how Juan Francisco de Anza took several Tohono O'dham families with him to settle San Francisco.
