Inauguration Illumination :: Northern Avenue Bridge
Tuesday October 29, 2013 at 6 pm
Northern Avenue Bridge, Boston MA

On the evening of Tuesday, October 29, Mayor Thomas M. Menino will "flip the switch" to inaugurate a dramatic and artistic illumination of the Northern Avenue Bridge. This permanent installation was made possible by Boston Public Works. It was coordinated by Light Boston and designed by Boston artist John Powell.

The hundred-year-old, industrial-age girders and built-up structure will "take the light" magnificently, dancing to a changing spectrum of LED lighting.

The public, especially members of civic organizations concerned with joy of understanding and husbanding the richness of our physical environment, is encouraged to join the celebration.

The program is scheduled to start at about 6 pm, with the main event - the illumination - coming alive at 6:30 pm.
