Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge now lights the Dallas sky

The City of Dallas, The Trinity Trust, Trinity Commons Foundation and Bridge-O-Rama representatives pulled the switch the light up the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge on Jan. 10. The glowing bridge will have its official debut at the weekend of celebration -- March 2-4, 2012. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to walk, party or run on the bridge and toast to the best new view in town.

Between the luminous Dallas skyline on the eastside and the vibrant festivities of Bridge-O-Rama in West Dallas, party guests (2,000 expected) will experience the beauty of Santiago Calatrava's design up close as they enjoy celebrity chef creations, specialty drinks, headliner entertainment, and dance the night away on the bridge.
