Lighting City Hall

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​City Hall Lighting.JPG​​​​​​Lighting the exterior of City Hall helps to celebrate and build community spirit in Lethbridge. The exterior lights of City Hall are a beautifying element to our downtown, a symbol of pride for locals and part of our Lethbridge story.

​Residents are invited to make requests to light City Hall based on the criteria outlined below. We strive to fulfill all eligible requests, but any confirmed request may be modified if a major, local, national or international situation occurs.

All requests must be approved at the discretion of the City Manager or designate.
