This past Memorial Day weekend, rental company Main Light Industries sponsored “Illuminate Delaware,” a four-day event in which landmarks in Wilmington and around the state were illuminated as a tribute to essential workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as fallen U.S. military personnel.
“Illuminate Delaware” was a Memorial Day weekend lighting action – the brainchild of John DiEleuterio, Wilmington DE resident and sales / project manager for dry hire company Main Light industries – hatched to deliver some special visual magic for local communities whilst saluting essential workers as well as fallen US military personnel.
Over the Memorial Day Weekend, Delaware residents can see several of our state’s most beloved landmarks dressed in spectacular light. It’s all part of a four-day event, called Illuminate Delaware, which is a local tribute to both essential workers and fallen U.S. military personnel.
Main Light Industries’ John DiEleuterio got approval from Delaware city officials for a visual salute to hospital and other essential workers and also to fallen U.S. military personnel over Memorial Day weekend. Main Light and Electro Sound Systems (ESS) provided Astera and Elation LED fixtures to light up buildings in Wilmington and Dover, DE, working with others who also donated their time and expertise on the project.
