Lakeport, California – The City of Lakeport is joining communities across the country to show support and gratitude to first responders, healthcare and other essential workers on the frontlines of COVID-19. Blue lights will shine in the downtown area starting April 10 and be on display through the weekend.
The national campaign, “Light It Blue,” originated spontaneously in cities with displays on public buildings, bridges and storefronts, demonstrating appreciation for those who are keeping our communities safe during the global pandemic.
Purple lights will be glowing in California and locally on April 13 and 20, paying tribute to workers in the tourism and hospitality industry. These employers and employees have been hard hit by the ongoing closure of their businesses due to the coronavirus crisis.
The City and the community appreciate all the frontline and behind-the-scenes workers and responders. Residents and businesses are encouraged to display similar lighting and show
New lighting was installed in downtown Lakeport during the improvement projects and are programmed by a computer system which can be turned on and off by the flip of a switch.
