>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Harvey Milk Plaza | Market St., and Castro St., San Francisco, CA
Salute the memories of supervisor Harvey Milk and mayor George Moscone at the 35th annual Vigil & Night of Remembrance on November 27, 2013 with a vigil at Milk Plaza at 7 pm followed by a candlelight march down Market Street to City Hall.
A performance by the Gay Men’s Chorus, words of inspiration from Dustin Lance Black, and a recorded message from Harvey Milk will conclude the evening.
For 2013, there are two events on the same night: one at 4:30 pm at City Hall with a march to the Castro and then another at 7 pm at Castro/Market with a march back to City Hall. If you don’t mind walking and have a lot of candles, you can always do both.
The event commemorates the lives and untimely deaths of these two extraordinary individuals on the anniversary of their assassinations in 1978 and commemorating the spontaneous candlelight march the night of the shootings.
