A tribute for the victims of the 2017-18 Humboldt Broncos bus crash will be held online due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The tribute will recognize the two-year anniversary of the accident that killed 16 people and injured 13 more. It will be held Monday at 2 p.m. ET on the city's website.
The city originally planned to create a temporary exhibit comprised of memorabilia received following the tragedy.
“In the midst of all the turmoil in the present world we want to make sure the lives lost and those that were changed forever two years ago are not forgotten,” Humboldt mayor Rob Muench said in a statement. “During this time of self-isolating and practicing physical distancing, it’s important to us that people still have a place to go to reflect and remember the tragedy and the outpouring of support that our community received on a global scale.”
Humboldt's St. Augustine Catholic Church will ring its bells at 4:50 p.m. on Monday in recognition of the approximate time that the accident occurred.
