IPTC INFO
CaptionRosa De Anda has been coordinating the making of the altars for the celebration for the past 14 years most recently with the Marigold Project. ________ Day of the Dead is both solemn and joyful. “The celebration is peaceful ” she said. Asked to react to the re-routing of the procession and omitting the passing thru Balmy Alley that was “strictly for safety reasons.” De Anda and others were concerned that the closing of the alley to the procession was “a political issue.” And that the San Francisco Police were being “over-controlling.” Yet speaking on behalf of SFPD Sergeant Mike Solomon said “I understand how passionate people are about the murals that are in that alley. But we don't use that alley for the procession any more because there are just too many people.” As someone who helps to coordinate events in the Mission for the SF Police Dept. Solomon wanted to make clear “we are just trying to help. With so many people pouring in to the neighborhood for the event we have to plan accordingly ” said Solomon. As of press time it was not clear if the spiral that completes the procession will turn south off 24th Street and go into the magic mural environment of Balmy alley or complete its cycle a few steps further using Harrison --- or BOTH.
HeadlineWill Procession be allowed access to Balmy Alley in 2006? NO
