Storybook Character Parade!

The Storybook parade kicks off an exciting weekend of fun at the Tucson Festival of Books for children. Everyone's invited to this free outdoor event. The UA Bookstore will have life-sized storybook characters to have fun with! Get your picture taken with them, march in our parade, with singers and youth mariachi players too! It starts at 9:30 in the Canyon, in front of the UA Bookstore in the walkway between the UA Bookstore and Student Union. The parade will march east, down to the Education building, a short distance away. It starts at 9:30 am and ends at the children's area at about 9:50 am.
