Find "Quarantine Rainbows" Across Manhattan Beach

May 16, 2020 11:50PM ● By Jeanne Fratello
During the COVID-19 quarantine, families around the world have been putting rainbows in their windows as a sign of hope for good times to come. In Manhattan Beach, we're seeing more rainbows everywhere we look. 

These "Quarantine Rainbows" began with children in Italy and Spain, two of the countries hardest hit by the COVID-19 epidemic. Often the rainbows are accompanied by the words, "Todo saldrá bien," or "Andrà tutto bene," or in English, “Everything will be fine.” 

The rainbows have become so popular that there's even a "Rainbow Connection" map that allows you to look all over the world on Google maps to find out where people have placed rainbows. 

In Manhattan Beach, we've seen rainbows in windows, on the sidewalks, and even crocheted onto trees. 

Do you have a rainbow you want us to add to our gallery? Email us at jf [at] digmb [dot] com.

P.S. RIP to Paul Vasquez, the joyful "double rainbow" guy, who passed away from COVID-19 last week.

P.P. S. Have you seen our other "quarantine" photo galleries? Check out our  #BearHunt Through Manhattan Beach and our Manhattan Beach Says 'Thank You' galleries. We've actually been updating the bear gallery daily because there's a house with a special bear display that changes every day. Check it out!
