Thousands to celebrate World AIDS Day in San Francisco
World AIDS Day weekend is being celebrated around the globe Saturday and especially in San Francisco at the National AIDS Memorial Grove.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was honored at last year's event for her tireless work in helping create the memorial.
Thousands are expected to take part in a candlelight vigil to celebrate the spirit of life and light Saturday night.
The memorial grove, on seven acres in Golden Gate Park, was created in 1991, 10 years into the AIDS epidemic when 17,000 San Francisco citizens had died.
