The "M" in red

The "M" on Box Springs Mountain will be illuminated to celebrate local high school graduations. The M will be lit up in the colors of each high school on the night of that school's graduation from dusk until midnight.

M Lighting Schedule in Honor of High School Graduation
May 30 – Rancho Verde High School Graduation – Red
June 5 – Canyon Springs High School Graduation – Teal
June 6 – Moreno Valley High School Graduation – Blue and Gold
June 7 – Valley View High School Graduation – Red

"Congratulations on all of your hard work and best of luck in your next venture," said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez.

City Hall's LED lighting system on Box Springs Mountain for the 'M' is designed to enhance local events and provide a source of civic unity and pride. The default color will be white.

Lighting the ‘M’ promotes the City, its civic institutions, state and federal holidays, and other public events of community significance and times of celebration. The City may accept community requests for special lighting to recognize a specific cause or to commemorate or enhance a specific event. Non-profit and charitable organizations can request that the 'M' be illuminated in specific colors to elevate awareness of their cause.

Priority in choosing colors for the lights will be given to promoting events that celebrate the City, its civic institutions, City recognized holidays, public events and festivals. Requests to change the color or pattern of the 'M’s' decorative lights will be accommodated as dates are available. The City reserves the right to deny or modify requests.

For more information, to see the lighting schedule or to submit a request please visit the City's website.
