The Niagara Falls Illumination Board will pay tribute to Kobe Bryant.

The American and Horseshoe Falls will shine purple and gold from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. tonight, to honour the Lakers legend.

He passed away in a helicopter crash earlier this year, alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others.

Thousands of people gathered for a memorial service at the Staples Center today.

Today's date honours Kobe's number 24 Lakers jersey. Gianna also wore the number 2 for her basketball team.
