On Dec. 1, about 100 prominent St. Petersburg residents and volunteers gathered at the LGBT Welcome Center on Central Avenue for a candlelight vigil and reception commemorating the 25th Anniversary of World AIDS Day.

The vigil was the final event in an art installation which created a mile and a half long virtual red ribbon on Central Avenue by wrapping 173 trees in red cloth. The installation featured an opportunity for visitors to write messages of remembrance and inspiration for those touched by the epidemic.
