21 year old Mickey Shunick went missing this past April. Just a few months later, a man admitted to her murder and led police to her body.
Now, as family and friends continue to mourn her loss, they will also celebrate her life.
There will be a community celebration at the Parc International in downtown Lafayette this Saturday. This special event will include a public art wall, music, food and drinks, and a chance to hear people talk about Mickey. The gates open at 11:30 am and the event kicks off at noon.
If you come out to celebrate Mickey, you're encouraged to join the public bike ride -- a ride that will follow the route Mickey took the morning she went missing.
