This week's cold weather has prompted officials to switch the location of the annual Pearl Harbor Day beacon lighting on Mount Diablo.

The beacon will still be lit at the summit, but the ceremony honoring the survivors of the 1941 Japanese attack in Hawaii will be held in Concord.

The event begins at 3:45 p.m. Saturday in the Oak Room in the library of the Cal State East Bay campus off Ygnacio Valley Road.

This 50th lighting is expected to draw its largest crowd ever because of the refurbishing of the beacon earlier this year and its re-installation atop the summit building in October.
