Arlington will light up the city blue this Monday, November 13, in celebration of World Kindness Day.

That includes one of Arlington 's newest landmarks, the Interstate 30 gateway monument that welcomes drivers as they enter our Entertainment District. The 20-foot tall monument, located north of Randol Mill Park near the Fielder Road exit, is typically illumined with white light but features LED lights can be programmed to change colors for holidays and special events, including home wins by the Dallas Cowboys or Texas Rangers.

For example, the marker will also be lit blue on Saturday, November 11 in honor of Veterans Day.
