ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - In the wake of deadly terrorist attacks on Paris, many cities across the United States have shown support by lighting buildings and structures in the colors of France; blue, white and red.

On Saturday, Roanoke lit the Mill Mountain Star in those colors to show support for the families and victims of the attacks. The city said the Star will remain lit in France's colors through Tuesday evening.

The city announced Monday it would continue to show support with the interactive fountains in Elmwood Park. The water will shine blue, white and red Monday evening.
