Billy Manes, the activist, mayoral candidate, and longtime Orlando Weekly writer, passed away in 2017, and he took a little bit of the city’s heart with him. Now his heart’s being channeled – along with his impact on Orlando and his signature white-blond coif – by artists Michael Pilato and Yuriy Karabash into a mural in Thornton Park. Come bask in Billy’s radiance as the mural is unveiled tonight, and take solace in knowing that you can now do so any time you need to, day or night.

8 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 | Burton’s Thornton Park, 801 E. Washington St. | facebook.com/billymaneslegacymural | free
