GRAND ISLE — Gov. Bobby Jindal is heading to Grand Isle to mark the anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and the massive Gulf oil spill it spawned.

Jindal is scheduled to be joined by coastal parish officials at a press briefing Wednesday at a marina.

Later today, Grand Isle plans to hold a prayer service and a candlelight vigil for the 11 workers killed in the April 20, 2010, rig blast. The vigil also is designed to reflect on the environmental toll exacted by the nation’s worst offshore oil spill. Similar events are planned on other parts of the Gulf Coast, including a sunrise gathering near New Orleans’ Jackson Square, where a candle-lit moment of silence is planned.
