March 27, 2014 – The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority (Peace Bridge Authority) and Buffalo Bisons Baseball announced today that the Peace Bridge will be illuminated to celebrate the return of baseball to the region and the binational partnership between the Bisons and the Toronto Blue Jays.

The span will alternate between Bisons and Blue Jays team colors on April 2 (9:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.) the night before the Bisons Opening Day against the Rochester Red Wings at Coca-Cola Field (April 3, 2:05 p.m.).

This is the second straight year the Peace Bridge will help usher in Bisons baseball and celebrate the Herd’s affiliation with the Toronto Blue Jays. The Peace Bridge Authority and Bisons will once again work together on a number of promotional and marketing ventures to promote cross-border travel to Coca-Cola Field.

The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority, a binational authority, has owned and operated the Peace Bridge since 1933. The bridge, which was opened to traffic in 1927, spans the Niagara River between Fort Erie, Ontario, and Buffalo, New York, and is a key international border crossing. The Authority is governed by a 10 member board with an equal number of representatives from Canada and the United States.
