Prince’s ashes to be displayed on the 5th anniversary of his death

April 21 will mark five years since Prince died. To commemorate the day, his people are opening his 65,000 Paisley Park complex near Minneapolis to fans free of charge. I quote from the ad:

“On the fifth anniversary of the passing of the incomparable Prince, Paisley Park, his home and creative sanctuary, is opening its doors for fans to pay tribute and celebrate his life. The Paisley Park Atrium, 7801 Audubon Road, will be open for free visitation on Wednesday April 21 from 9:00am – 9:00pm. Advance reservations are required. Guests are also welcome to leave flowers, mementos, and other memorial items in front of the Love Symbol statue outside the Paisley Park main entrance.”

One of the major attractions will be the ceramic urn featuring Prince’s ashes. The urn used to be on display when Paisley Park first turned into a museum in October 2016, but the family asked that they be put someplace private. Until now,

Fans will get 30 minutes inside and must wear mask. Attendance will be limited to 1,400. Reservations can be made here.
