CULLMAN, Ala. – Sept.11, 2020 marks the 19th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Friday night, a blue searchlight will shine from Depot Park into the sky in remembrance of those lost that day. The light will be projected from 7-11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11, 2020.

Cullman Mayor Woody Jacobs began planning this shortly after it was announced that New York City had canceled its blue lights this year.

“Even though New York City has decided to have their ‘Tribute in Light’ ceremony after all, we still feel it’s a good thing for us to try to do here in Cullman, too,” said Jacobs.

The City of Cullman reminds anyone who may go to Depot Park Friday night to follow all COVID-19 related social distancing and sanitation guidelines.
