Houston Sports & Civic Facilities Unite to #LightItBlue Thursday Night

Apr 8, 2020

Houston’s sports and civic venues will join forces tomorrow evening to turn the city blue as part of the global #LightItBlue movement to support the men and women on the front lines of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

City Hall, the George R. Brown Convention Center, Partnership Tower and the bridges over Highway 59, along with BBVA Stadium, Minute Maid Park, NRG Stadium, Rice Stadium, Reckling Park, TDECU Stadium and the Toyota Center will all turn their LED signage and/or exterior marquees blue from 8-9 p.m. CDT. Many of the facilities will feature messages of thanks on their video screens, and teams and organizations across the city will be making social media posts using #LightItBlue and #MakeItBlue.

Houston will join numerous other cities around America, including New York, Seattle, Boston, Kansas City, New Orleans and many more in tonight’s campaign, which is expected to include hundreds of major sports, entertainment and civic venues across the country.


The #LightItBlue and #MakeItBlue movement began last week in the United Kingdom as they lit major landmarks throughout the country in salute to their healthcare providers. The goal of this effort is to create a global expression of support and gratitude to the healthcare and essential professionals who are saving lives and stabilizing our society.
