World AIDS Day vigil

Published Dec. 2, 2006

Merry Widow, who did not want to give his real name, attends a World AIDS Day vigil in Lykes Gaslight Park on Thursday, saying he was "mourning those who have gone before." The event was sponsored by the Hillsborough County Health Department. Today is World AIDS Day, and communities around the world will hold events to try to raise awareness of the need to stop the spread of HIV and AIDS. In Williams Park in downtown St. Petersburg, a wellness fair from noon to 4 p.m. will feature free health screenings as well as food and entertainment, including singer Alexis Spates.
