Happening Tonight: Charles Bridge to Light Up to mark International Day of Light

Together with the laser technology research centre ELI Beamlines, Signal Festival will celebrate the International Day of Light this weekend.

The event will take place on the Charles Bridge, where a symbolic monumental installation will intersect both ends with a laser beam.

“Charles Bridge is where we lit up one of our first installations in 2013. This is our way of saying thank you to science in particular, which is constantly improving life on our planet. The beam will be lit on Saturday from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.,” says one of the organizers.

“And don’t forget that the 10th anniversary year of the Signal Festival will take place from 13th to 16th October in the streets of Prague.”

The International Day of Light is celebrated on May 16, when the first laser beam was fired by American physicist and engineer Theodore Maiman.
