A community celebration to honor the life of Mickey Shunick will take place from noon to five at Parc International in Downtown Lafayette on September 29th.
To contribute art to a public art wall or volunteer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The event is free to the public food and refreshments will be available for purchase. A public art wall will be on display, and t-shirts with a new, celebratory graphic will be sold for the cost of printing.
There will also be musical performances but the celebration will begin with friends sharing their memories of Mickey. City-Parish president Joey Durel will speak, family and friends will recognize law enforcement officers, volunteers, donors, doctors and members of the community who helped in the search effort for Shunick.
The event will conclude with a public bike ride following the route Shunick took the morning of May 19. A ghost bike will be permanently placed at the end of St.Landry street as a tribute to Mickey.
