Relighting THE BAY LIGHTS, March 6th

In honor of THE BAY LIGHTS First Anniversary, The Ferry Building, MarketBar, KFOG and Illuminate the Arts will host a first anniversary celebration with artist Leo Villareal. We invite you to don lighted gear or wearable art and make your festive way to any place on the waterfront with a clear view of THE BAY LIGHTS—you can also watch it streamed live at thebaylights.org/view. Tune into KFOG-FM 104.5 and 97.7 before THE BAY LIGHTS goes dark at 7:00PM (or click LISTEN LIVE on kfog.com to catch the music on your phone or iPad), and ten minutes later you’ll hear a celebratory countdown to THE BAY LIGHTS relighting as KFOG broadcasts a brilliant 20-minute soundtrack. Check out our Dine & Shine map of waterfront restaurants with amazing views of THE BAY LIGHTS and make reservations now for a really special evening.
