Chicago — Several prominent downtown Chicago buildings will be bathed in red, white and green lights in September to celebrate Mexico’s independence, community leaders announced Wednesday.

The effort, organized by the Mexican Consulate, Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn and radio host Javier Salas, will run from Sept. 12-17. The city plans to light several downtown bridges in Mexico’s national colors.

At least 20 buildings and landmarks will participate, including Navy Pier, Sears Tower and the Wrigley Building, according to a spokeswoman for Quinn.

The “skyline tribute,” as organizers call it, began last year to mark the Sept. 16 Mexican national holiday.
