His "purpleness" will be honored in Chicago tonight.Last week we lost a great in music and a number of his biggest fans are looking to pay tribute to Prince by hosting a Prince parade at Wicker park in Chicago tonight.

The event is being billed as “A Night of A Thousand Princes – The Purple Walk” and will take place from 8pm-10pm. The parade will begin at 9 p.m.

Get ready to party like it's 1999!

The Facebook page, created by the event organizers says

So put on some eyeliner and your best ‘Prince inspired’ outfit, (Wear lots of Purple and meet us at Wicker Park, by the fountain around sunset.
We will be playing his biggest hits, as we take it to the streets of Wicker Park around 9 p.m. We will walk down Damen to Division to Ashland to Milwaukee and end up at 6 corners. We will walk around the neighborhood and end our Prince tribute parade with LETS GO CRAZY!!!


Long live Prince!

I'll have to check my closet and see if any of my Prince clothes from the 1980's will still fit....I doubt it!
