We are so excited about the The Bay Lights we decided we had to have a sale.  The Grand Lighting Ceremony is March 5, 2013.  If you use the coupon code BAY LIGHTS (all in caps) you will receive 20% discount until then.

We’ll be celebrating the Grand Lighting Ceremony with the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (GAAFTA) Cruise. (We hate to tell you but it’s sold out). But if you’ll happen to be on the boat, look for us on the upper deck, where you’ll be able to buy something to light yourself up on the spot.  For this special occasion, we’re also offering special delivery to the boat if you place your order by 10 am PST on Monday, March 4th.  Just select “Bay Lights GAFFTA Cruise Party” as your shipping option.

Here are some suggestions we think you might enjoy wherever you are viewing the Grand Lighting:

Rainbow Tassles.  a burst of all 10 of our High Bright and Hella Phat colors
Fuze Necklaces.  polished quartz necklaces that radiate a spectrum of light.
Cool Neon Sunglasses
Look at all of our Instant Gratification Cool Neon items for wire that’s ready to wear.

Rainbow Tassles will need a driver.  We suggest the AA Handheld driver.
Plug & Play kits will need batteries.

If you are not in the area but are interested in seeing the Grand Lighting Ceremony, there is a live webcast here.

The artist, Leo Villareal, has been here doing some testing and the fabulous video below gives you a taste of how the Bay Bridge will look over the next couple of years.

If you are interested in an opportunity to “personalize” one or more lights in The Bay Lights, you can do that here.  It is a beautiful way to memorialize a loved one, give a present, celebrate a holiday, community or group.

Love Potion Tranceporter II is a spectacular mutant vehicle (art car) that was on the Playa in 2012, and we loved their use of Cool Neon lighting. We thought that you might like to see the beginning of the armature, because we always like to see how everything is put together, some other photos and a little DJ action from inside the Tranceporter.   We feel very lucky to participate with such fun fabulous artists.
