The Ben Franklin Bridge Will Glow Rainbow for Orlando Victims

Expect to see the suspension bridge illuminated Wednesday night through Saturday night.

The Ben Franklin Bridge will light up in honor of the victims of the Orlando shooting, the Delaware River Port Authority announced Tuesday.

You can expect to see the suspension bridge, which connects Camden to Philly, illuminated in rainbow colors Wednesday night through Saturday night.

The bridge will join structures and monuments around the world that will glow in remembrance of the 49 lives claimed and the 53 wounded by a gunman who opened fire early June 12th in Pulse, a popular LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando. It was the country’s deadliest mass shooting.

On Monday night, an emotional vigil drew hundreds to City Hall in honor of the victims, which included 18-year-old Philly-native Akyra Murray.
