Organizers behind Sarasota's annual Harvey Milk Festival will hold a candlelight vigil for victims of the Orlando shooting tonight at Five Points Park from 8 to 9:30 p.m. Early Sunday morning, a gunman opened fire at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 people and wounding 53 others. It's the worst shooting in U.S. history.

To show solidarity, the Harvey Milk festival asks "that you come down to show support for others that are still waiting to hear from family members and friends who were targeted at Pulse, and to honor the lives that were taken from our community."
