Route: The Harbor Hotel to The Provincetown Theater via Commercial Street
The Procession, designed to remember and honor the dead through artistic expressions, is an integral part of Provincetown’s Day of the Dead Festival. At the heart of the Procession is a belief in the power of creativity to help grieve the loss of loved ones – whether friend, family member, partner, spouse, co-worker, animal companion, or cultural hero.
In Mexico, El Día de los Muertos processions include many art forms, such as face-painting, wearing a mask and/or costume, carrying skeleton puppets, playing instruments, singing, dancing, and carrying signs, candles, or photos of loved ones. Provincetown’s Procession will include all these traditional elements and more.
All art forms welcome and encouraged!
The Procession is free and all are welcome.
No registration needed – but arrive early for free face-painting & festivities!
The Procession will start promptly at 5:30pm on Friday, November 2.
Face-painting, stilt-walking, drumming, and other festivities begin at 4:30pm.
The Procession will begin at The Harbor Hotel, travel west on Commercial Street, turn onto Hancock Street, and end at The Provincetown Theater. If interested in watching the procession, join us along Commercial Street in the East End beginning at Allerton Street and ending at Hancock Street.
