Gracie Snider's Candlelight Vigil

More than 500 people came to Manito Park, May 7, 2014, to remember 10-year-old Gracie Snider who was killed in a traffic accident Saturday on her way home from a soccer match. Most came because they knew Gracie or were involved in soccer, but some were there simply because they felt they needed to be there.

Luminary bags are placed along the sidewalk near the Manito Park picnic shelter before the start of the candlelight vigil for Gracie Snider.
