Las Vegas Timewarp- the 60's

Night Colors- Las Vegas Fremont Street Experience

A number of years ago, Las Vegas covered over several blocks of the dying old strip on Fremont Street with a 17.5 million dollar high-tech grid and promoted the area as the Fremont Street Experience... 12.5 million LED lights backed by lots of computer power pushing hourly light shows. All the street and casino lights dim and the grid transforms into one of seven ginourmous themed light shows accompanied by appropriate music and sound effects.

Foot traffic only, lots of kiosks selling adult beverages, eclectic "high-end carnival booths" along the avenue selling touristy stuff, access to the old casinos and lots of tourists (with the occasional local, usually a panhandler or "unique" individual) feeling the effects of their indulgences.
