Fremont Street has a cool free outdoor light show.
It is in the "downtown," which is actually at the north end of the Strip (go figure).
The high-tech light show of 2.1 million bulbs is on a canopy covering 5 street blocks.
The show lasts about 5 minutes and is beautiful.
I tried to combine the overhead show with some of the faces of the people walking down the street.
Enjoyed the experience - like an IMAX and very creative.
Interesting...on the way over, took a cab and talking with the driver, he told me how one of his colleagues found a box of chocolates in his cab this week.
When he opened the box, there was $300,000 inside!
Like Forrest Gump's mother told him, "Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get" - in Vegas and beyond. ;-)
