Mayor's Office Press Release

Mayor Turner Announces City Hall Lights Honoring the Houston Rockets

May 10, 2018 -- As the city’s #1 basketball fan, Mayor Turner joins all Houstonians in cheering for the Houston Rockets as the team prepares for the Western Conference Finals. 

On Sunday, May 13 and Monday, May 14, Houston City Hall will be illuminated in the color RED to honor the Rockets. The city will soon release information about other possible dates.

The Mayor’s Office of Special Events (MOSE) works with organizations and individuals to wash City Hall in lights of a color that relates to their cause or purpose. Written requests may be submitted up to one year in advance. MOSE endeavors to accommodate as many requests as possible, and requests are handled on a first come, first served manner. The City of Houston will override the requested schedule only in support of citywide, national or world observances or emergencies, and will work with requestors to best accommodate or reschedule their request, if possible.

Tonight, like last night, city hall will be lit in teal at the request of the national Food Allergy Research and Education organization, in support of the annual Food Allergy Awareness Week.

As we have done, we will continue to support the Houston Rockets and all sports teams by illuminating city hall in team colors as we are able.

Go Rockets!
