I just found out through ABC News 7 that the lights will turned off at 8:30pm for one hour. I copied pasted the news story below. Sunset is supposed to be at 7:20pm. I am thinking that we should reschedule this event?
SAN FRANCISCO -- California Department of Transportation officials plan to turn off decorative lights on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Saturday in observance of international "Earth Hour," according to an announcement released by the department Wednesday.
Caltrans will turn off unnecessary bridge lights for an hour beginning at 8:30 p.m., leaving overhead lights lit for traffic safety.
It will be the third year Bay Bridge lights are dimmed in observance of the environmentally conscious tradition, which began in Sydney, Australia in 2007 and aims to promote energy conservation.
