Mayor invites public to view Ali memorial at Belvedere

June 08, 2016

Only location for public livestream of service in downtown Louisville

Mayor Greg Fischer today invited citizens and visitors to the Belvedere Friday to view a livestream of the memorial service for Muhammad Ali.

Two large screens will be set up on the Belvedere for the public starting at 12:30 p.m. Friday. The Louisville Water Co. will provide water, and the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts lobby will be open for restrooms. The Belevedere is adjacent to the Kentucky Center, 501 W. Main St.

This will be the only livestream of the Ali memorial service in downtown Louisville.

The memorial service begins at 2 p.m. Friday, June 10, at the KFC Yum! Center. Tickets are no longer available.  Eulogists include Lonnie Ali, journalist Bryant Gumbel, actor Billy Crystal and former President Bill Clinton. 

Ali, a Louisville native, died June 3 at age 74. He will be buried in a private ceremony Friday at Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville. Public events are being held in Louisville throughout the week to remember him. More information on those events and other ways to remember Ali can be found at alilouisville.com.
