ORLANDO, Fla. – On Friday, Lake Eola will illuminate the fountain in blue, white and red to honor the victims of the Nice, France, terror attack that killed over 70 people when a truck plowed through a crowd on the French holiday Bastille Day.

France illuminated the Eiffel Tower in rainbow colors to honor 49 people who were slain and 53 were injured during the massacre at Pulse nightclub.

The gunman, Omar Mateen, was killed in a shootout with police.
