HOUSTON, TX — With Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals kicking off Monday in Houston, Mayor Sylvester Turner announced the City Hall lights will be illuminated in red on Sunday (May 13) and Monday to honor the Rockets. The city will soon release information about other possible dates.
The Mayor’s Office of Special Events (MOSE) works with organizations and individuals to wash City Hall in lights of a color that relates to their cause or purpose. Written requests may be submitted up to one year in advance. MOSE endeavors to accommodate as many requests as possible, and requests are handled on a first come, first served manner.
Tonight, like last night, city hall will be lit in teal at the request of the national Food Allergy Research and Education organization, in support of the annual Food Allergy Awareness Week.
