"His death was a great loss for the world," said the Mayor. "I'm hoping our residents take a moment at least once this week to pay their respects to the man and all that he was."
As usual, businesses on Moose Street have offered the Mayor their support.
The Dojo will have free classes, and CineMoose Theaters, Moosemark, and Sweet Moose Tees will offer special Bruce Lee items for the entire month of July.
Anita Pepper of Mooseville Café says she's excited for this year's celebration, as well.
"We love Bruce Lee Week," said Anita Pepper, Mooseville Café chef. "Last year was a big success, but this year I'm adding some sweetness to the festivities. Ooh, come on now."
Bruce Lee Week begins today and lasts through July 20. Bruce Lee died July 20, 1973.
"It's going to be a great week," the Mayor promises. "I don't know what all's going to happen exactly, but we're definitely going to honor him."
When pressed for more details about a specific schedule of events, the Mayor was vague.
"The week will be like water," she said.
What will actually happen in Mooseville during Bruce Lee Week is unclear but one thing is certain. The Mayor's "no event as an event" approach to planning this year's celebration is, if anything, right in line with Bruce Lee's style.
