Canceled Ringling Bridge Lighting for Gun Violence Awareness Month – Canceled by FDOT but Save the Date

Bayfront Park 5 Bayfront Drive, Sarasota, United States

Brady Sarasota and other local groups were planning to gather on June 8 at Bayfront Park to see the Ringling Bridge lit orange for Gun Violence Awareness month. However, the Florida Department of Transportation has decided that no bridge in the state can light up for awareness of any event or group this summer. Instead, bridges are to be illuminated in red, white and blue from Memorial Day to Labor Day to celebrate the sales tax holiday bill signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis. Other groups that would have seen their colors on the bridge this summer: Pride, Juneteenth, Equality Day, National Recovery Month and World Fragile X Day.

We haven't decided our next step but will keep you posted. Save that June 8 date at 8 pm, though. We may just show up at the park -- orange lights or no orange lights.
And we still ask you to wear your orange shirts for Brady or rainbow colors for Pride to church on Sunday, June 2. 
See Carol Rescigno if you have questions.
