Mount Diablo’s beacon is lit at sunset and shines all night on this single evening each year.

Beacon Lighting Ceremony

Commemorating the 57th Annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day—“Lest We Forget” 

In honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we invite you to attend the annual “Eye of Diablo” beacon lighting ceremony to pay tribute to and honor our veterans.

Every year since 1964, the Pearl Harbor survivors and their families have memorialized Pearl Harbor Day by relighting the historic Beacon atop Mount Diablo’s summit. When those who experienced Pearl Harbor are gone, the history is lost with them. That tragedy should never happen again, “Lest We Forget.”

The Pearl Harbor Survivors and Save Mount Diablo are grateful for the assistance and support from Mount Diablo State Park, CCTV, California State University—East Bay: Concord Campus, Vietnam Helicopters Museum, and the Sons & Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors. 

Thanks to those who attended the 56th Annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day on December 7, 2019! Check out the gallery from the event below.
