Niagara Falls to Shine Lakers Colours in Memory of Kobe Bryant

Niagara Falls will shine purple and gold, in honour of basketball legend Kobe Bryant.

He was killed in a helicopter crash late last month, alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others.

The Niagara Falls Illumination Board says the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls will shine the Lakers colours from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Monday February 24th.

A public memorial will also be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles that day.

Kobe wore the number 24 jersey for the Lakers, while Gianna wore the number 2 jersey for her basketball team.
