There's still time to get to one of the more significant — and different — Memorial Day celebrations: the Celebration of Life at the Overton Park Shell, which lasts until early evening.

The event is under the auspices of Stevie Moore's organization FFUN (Freedom from Unncessary Negatives), founded to combat random street violence in the city of Memphis.

This year's event marks the 10th anniversary of the shooting death of Prentice Moore, the founder's son, and will be attended by numerous dignitairies, including Mayors A C Wharton and Mark Luttrell.
