Illuminate is the San Francisco arts nonprofit behind The Bay Lights and the illumination of the Conservatory of Flowers for the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love as well as Harvey’s Halo and “Hope will Never be Silent” in the Castro to honor Harvey Milk.

At 6 pm on November 8, 2017, San Franciscans will gather at Castro & Market St. to celebrate Harvey Milk’s vision of equality and to give everyone hope for moving forward towards peace and justice with speakers and performers.

And we’re told how gorgeous the lights look is dependant on how much particulate matter is in the air, so the foggier the better – perfect for San Francisco
