People Watching on Fremont Street

100_9262Fremont Street is closed to vehicle traffic from Las Vegas Blvd (the Strip) west to Main Street.  Above that entire stretch is Viva Vision, a canopy of lights integrating video, animation, and music.  At night there are short shows at the top of every hour.  It brings a lot of people to the downtown.  At the right is a picture from the Bon Jovi “show”.  And where there are lots of people in the street, there will be lots of street people trying to make a buck.  They are standing about the area hoping that people will pay for having their picture taken with them.  Shown below are Spiderman and Cupid.  Doesn’t everyone want to have their picture taken with a balding cupid wearing heart-shaped pasties and a makeshift thong?


Or, you could have your picture taken with the devil – wearing pasties and a thong.


Singers are popular too,  KISS or Elvis anyone?


Movie characters are also there.


And to close out this post.  How about a guy who plays a guitar with his teeth and a fairy princess?  It’s all happening right here in Vegas on Fremont Street.  And we are only two blocks away.



  1. When you are done people watching (omg, I think I hurt my eyes looking at those photos) here are two other Vegas area activities you might consider: 1) Hike the railroad tunnel trail in Boulder City. Beautiful and historic. Might be able to ride your bikes there as well, but I think part of the trail is gravel; 2) If you are not tired of red rocks, visit Valley of Fire State Park about 50 miles NE of Vegas.

    1. Probably will take in the railroad tunnel, but not more rocks at this time.

  2. We've been to the Fremont Experience on several occasions and always see something new and unusual. We did miss cupid, however, and I'm not so sure that I'd like to see that!

  3. Wow... that's just real close to disgusting! We were there... but did not see that!!
