BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Mayor Jack Young wants to turn the town purple!
He’s asking all Baltimore residents and businesses to show their support for the Ravens in their primetime home game this week by “bathing Baltimore City in purple light”.
The Department of General Services began installing purple light fixtures on city buildings Monday, and on Monday night, the Bromo Seltzer Tower, the War Memorial and City Hall Dome lit up purple.

“We are witnessing greatness before our eyes,” Young said in a statement. “The Ravens have been on a magical run and we want to do everything we can as a city to support the team and help keep that momentum going.
