ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – As fans around the world mourn the loss of Prince, St. Louisans are gathering Sunday to pay tribute the pop icon.
Hundreds of fans gathered in downtown St. Louis Sunday night to honor the pop icon on the Laclede’s Landing, on North Second Street to watch the movie Purple Rain and celebrate Prince’s life.
The pop star Prince Rogers Nelson was found dead this past Thursday in his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. An autopsy was conducted, but authorities say it could be weeks before the cause of his death is determined.
Laclede's Landing is being transformed tonight featuring the color purple in honor of Prince. Fans wanting to attend the party are being asked to wear purple, Prince’s favorite color.
Festivities will kick off at 7 pm on North Second Street.
There will be an outdoor free viewing of Purple Rain and a purple drinks pub crawl.
The bar Seven Zero Eight will donate all proceeds from drinks to a local charity to help LGBT youth and victims of bullying in high schools.
