Fans will have from 5:30 p.m. (when the march officially starts, erm, marching) until 7:20 p.m. (when the shovels hit the dirt) to meander their way over to the stadium location, purple pride shining bright. Continuing with their strong social media presence (see #paintthecitypurple), OCSC takes over every single Clear Channel Digital Billboard in Orlando tomorrow and all images hashtagged #wedigpurple on Instagram will be displayed city-wide. Another bonus for attendees of the event? A take-home souvenir! Rumor has it that those with #purplepride who sign up in advance online will receive a commemorative paint can to take home a keepsake amount of the 24 tons of purple sand being used for the event. Image via Bay News 9 After the groundbreaking takes place, there shuttles will be waiting to whisk all the marchers back to Church Street Station, where a royally-hued celebration will ensue.Loading
