Fenway Park will again participate in the worldwide "Light it up Blue" movement to raise awareness for autism.
Landmarks around the world will use blue lighting tonight as part of World Autism Awareness Day. According to a Red Sox press release, the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Tower in New York City, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and the Sydney Opera House in Australia are among the places that will participate.
Fenway Park's facade near Gate A on Yawkey Way will have blue lighting tonight.
Light it up Blue was created by Autism Speaks and is now in its third year.
