Bridge of Souls: Ceremony of Remembrance
“May this Bridge of Souls join heavy hearts in hope.”
An opportunity to acknowledge the impact of COVID-19 on our community in Waco and McLennan County – to honor those who died, recognize and thank the front-line workers who continue to risk their lives to care for others.
This event will unite community leaders, healthcare workers, and first responders together with families and friends who have lost loved ones to the pandemic. It is presented on the main stage at Waco Cultural Arts Fest, in Indian Spring Park, next to Franklin Avenue Bridge in downtown Waco.
There are free, confidential, mental health and emotional support for anyone affected directly or indirectly by the COVID-19 pandemic at the event from “Texans Recovering Together”. This free crisis counseling is also available at www.trthotccp.org.
Waco Cultural Arts fest runs from 15-17 October and is a free public event. Find further info and COVID protocols at https://wacoartsfest.org
This event accompanies the “Bridge of Souls” exhibit, which will be displayed in Indian Spring Park until November 20, when families and friends of COVID-19 victims will be able to collect the banners representing their loved ones.
