Rabobank Arena & Bakersfield Condors Set To Celebrate Earth Hour
Mechanics Bank Arena and the Bakersfield Condors will celebrate Earth Hour this Saturday, March 28th by turning off all non-essential arena bowl lighting during the 1st and 2nd intermission during the Condors game versus the Ontario Reign. Fans are encouraged to turn off all house lights and non-essential electronic devices before coming to the game.
Earth Hour is designed to show the power each one of us has to make a difference and demonstrate the collective strength of these small actions. Earth Hour started in just one city in 2007 and has spread to more than 7,000 cities covering all seven continents. The annual event takes place from 8:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. across all time zones and includes countless global landmarks, from the Eiffel Tower in Paris to the Empire State Building in New York to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
“Mechanics Bank Arena is proud to partner with the Condors and AEG 1EARTH in celebrating Earth Hour this Satuday,” said AEG Bakersfield General Manager Jon Dorman. “Our goal is to run the most environmentally sustainable venue possible, and we hope to encourage fans to conserve energy not just on Earth Hour, but throughout the year.”
