The Orange County Regional History Center will waive admission to the museum this weekend and display the 49 crosses that honor the victims of the June 12 Pulse nightclub shooting as part of Orlando Pride Days.

The crosses were created by artist Greg Zanis and are part of a 5,000-piece collection curated from several memorials in the months following the tragedy that killed 49 and injured at least 68 people.

Come Out With Pride events include a a festival, 4 p.m. parade and 9 p.m. fireworks on Saturday at Lake Eola. Organizers expect more than 100,000 people to attend the weekend’s events. The weekend was rescheduled because of Hurricane Matthew.
