In this video I’m visiting The Fremont Street Experience. It is a pedestrian mall and attraction in downtown Las Vegas and it occupies the westernmost five blocks of Fremont Street, including the area known for years as “Glitter Gulch,” and portions of some other adjacent streets.
The LED display “canopy,” runs along the Fremont Street Experience promenade from Main Street to Fourth Street. Holding the canopy aloft are 16 columns, each weighing 26,000 pounds and can hold up 400,000 pounds, and 43,000 struts.
A section comprising one fiftieth of the total canopy equals the size of the world’s current largest electric sign. Originally, nearly 2.1 million incandescent lights were housed in the canopy. With the completion of the million upgrade, more than 12 million LED lamps illuminate the overhead canopy.
The light shows run every hour and last about six minutes each.
If you like ‘oldskool’ Las Vegas this is the place for you to go!
