There's still time. Get home, gather the kids and/or dogs, put some tissue paper over the flashlight, grab some water and help end Tucson's birthday month at Noche de Luz.
The flashlight parade starts at 6:30 p.m. on Mission Road at the foot of "A" Mountain, and is an organized flashlight procession to honor "those who have gone before us."
More info from birthday organizers:
A $20 prize will be awarded for the flashlight decorated to best represent an individual's personal heritage and ancestors.
The official route will be approximately one mile, round trip. The parade begins on Mission Ro...ad at the foot of "A" Mountain's eastern face, south of the Mission Garden and north of 22nd Street. We will proceed along the Santa Cruz River Park and the DeAnza Trail, between 22nd Street and Mission Lane. Energetic paraders can extend the route another mile.
