The lights on the Sunnyside Arch were lit for the first time in years today.
James Bray, the executive director of Sunnyside Shines, said that the business improvement district will have the ability to light them whenever it chooses and whatever color. He said that he would be experimenting with a combination of different colors at his disposal this week.
UPDATE: Lights have not been attached to the word “Sunnyside” (see picture), so the letters will not be lit.
The Arch has historically had lights; however, in recent years they have been out.
They lights were out because the former electric incandescent bulbs burned out and it was difficult to replace the bulbs each time.
