Flowers in the Lake to honor domestic violence victims Thursday

GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) -

Domestic violence victims advocates are planning a memorial event for Thursday night in Gibson County.

The Flowers on the Lake event is a way to honor people whose lives have been shattered by domestic violence.

Last year, 67 people died from domestic violence in Indiana.

It's happening at Lafayette Park in Gibson County at 5:30 p.m.

Organizers say they'll start with a short ceremony, then release flowers into the lake to honor both victims and survivors.

They ask attendees to wear purple for Domestic Violence Awareness Month to the event.
