Light around Super Bowl 50

 

With Super Bowl 50 taking place this Sunday in Santa Clara, California, we thought it only fitting to highlight a few light-related sight-seeing opportunities around the Bay Area, so you can stay occupied and entertained regardless of whether or not you have tickets to the big game.

Re-lighting of the Bay Bridge
As a part of the Super Bowl City event, the Bay Bridge has been officially re-lit by artist Leo Villareal. The two-year installation will now permanently illuminate the San Francisco Bay’s night sky with 25,000 Philips connected light points and an advanced cloud-based connected lighting platform to remotely monitor and maintain the lighting system.

While not exactly a light-centered destination, Levi’s Stadium is impressive for other reasons. For over 20 years, the NFL has endeavored to incorporate environmental projects into the management of the Super Bowl. This year is no different. With solar panels on the roof and several sustainability goals such as no single-use plastic cups, locally sourced food, and numerous transportation initiatives, the host committee plans to make this year’s Super Bowl a “net positive” event. The stadium even boasts a 27,000 square foot green roof!
