Join us as we flip the switch! catchtheorange.com/firstlight We're turning on Tilikum Crossing's aesthetic light program for good, just before the bridge and MAX Orange Line open. We'll have a public viewing area at Zidell Yards, just south of the bridge in South Waterfront. The site will include a BridgePort beer garden, Salt & Straw's special-edition Orange Line ice cream, food carts and a live broadcast of music to accompany the show. Plus, the best view in town! All Classical Portland 89.9 FM will provide a live broadcast to a special opening light show, after which the lights will begin their permanent programmed sequence. The full spectrum of colors—based on the height, speed and temperature of the Willamette River below—will be on display during this historical event. The aesthetic lighting was created by artists Douglas Hollis and his wife, the late Anna Valentina Murch, for the Portland–Milwaukie Light Rail Transit Project’s Public Art Program. Some things to know before you go: – The public viewing area opens at 6 p.m.—the aesthetic lighting program will begin at approximately 9 p.m. – Please bring a lawn or beach chair for seating. – Take Portland Streetcar to the SW Moody & Meade stop or locate a nearby bus route – Bike parking will be provided.
