(WXYZ) — Buildings in downtown Detroit will light up red, white and blue Friday night in honor of essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bedrock partnered with local Detroit property owners to illuminate the skyline.

"We invite all homes and businesses to join us to amplify our support by turning a light outside their home to red or blue," Bedrock said.

The company said this will take place each night at nightfall and continue until the stay-at-home order has been lifted.

Participating businesses include: TCF Center, the Penobscot Building, Ford Field, Ernst & Young, 150 West Jefferson, the Ally Detroit Center, One Woodward Building, One Campus Martius, The Z Lot, David Stott and the Federal Reserve Building.
