The bridge lighting system can accommodate a few dozen multi-color lighting scenes, or preset combinations. They will commemorate known events / holidays during the year, awareness events, a Port of Long Beach theme based on its brand colors, and anticipated special occasions (e.g., sports championships, the upcoming Olympics, etc.). Some of these preset combinations repeat themselves, since some of the scenes serve more than one event (e.g., red, white, and blue).
The bridge lighting system enables the Port of Long Beach to program these commemorative preset combinations, scheduling them years in advance. The following list details each event during 2021, including its color combination, the start date of the scene and its duration. Between events, the default combination will be the Port of Long Beach’s colors (turquoise, navy blue and white).
