Downtown Augusta Colored Purple for Prince

AUGUSTA — Downtown Augusta is raining purple this weekend in celebration of the life of Prince.

Some of the fountains on Broad Street are lit up purple for Prince’s hit song, “Purple Rain.”

The James Brown Statue even has some purple attire on in memory of the artist.

City officials wanted to honor Prince, and since other cities across the country are lighting up purple, it only made sense to light up downtown Augusta.
