Buffalo, New York – In observance of the Fourth of July Holiday weekend, Mayor Byron W. Brown announced that a patriotic exterior light display will illuminate the front of Buffalo City Hall, starting on Friday, June 30th, as an important reminder that while we spend holiday time with family and friends, we also take time to remember the service and sacrifice of our servicemen and women. Each of the massive Egyptian revival style columns that stand at the entrance to the historic building will be illuminated in red, white, or blue from Friday to Tuesday, July 4th.

Mayor Brown stated, “I want to wish City residents and visitors a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend in Buffalo, but also, I hope they pause to remember that freedom is not free - it’s paid for by all the people who serve our community and country to make our world a better place. The large columns at Buffalo City Hall, designed in the shape of tightly bundled reeds, were built to represent strength in unity. As we illuminate them this holiday weekend in patriotic colors, we are asking our community to come together to recognize the progress made by those who came before us as we continue to work together to promote freedom, equity, and opportunity for everyone.”

Additionally, from Friday, through Tuesday, July 4th, the top of Buffalo City Hall will be illuminated in red, white, and blue. Mayor Brown asked the Buffalo Landmark Illumination Team (BuffaloLIT) to do the same with their landmark buildings and structures.
