On November 27, 1978 Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone were killed as they served the public in City Hall. On the night of their murders a group of tens of thousands gathered in the Castro and began an impromptu candlelit march to City Hall. 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.
