April's A-Z Challenge: The Letter F is for Fremont Street in Las Vegas, Nevada




In October 2008, Cary and I met up with our friends in Las Vegas.  Cary, Larry and Fred grew up together in Fillmore, California and have stayed in touch all of these years.

One evening, we went down to Fremont Street to enjoy the music and the light show.  Fremont Street is the "old" downtown Las Vegas.  If we ever go to Vegas again, I want to stay down there.  It is like a regular downtown mall.  You can easily go outside and walk around.  It is more like real life than being on the strip.  After being in Las Vegas for a day or so, I longed for real life.

In the evenings, they have live music on the mall, and a spectacular light show.  Fred and Joanne are dancing to the live band.

Fred is dancing with this guy just to make him happy.  That guy freaked me out.  Cary was in the convenience store, and that man spotted me and wanted to dance.  I said no, but he kept grabbing at me trying to make me dance with him.  I was getting scared.  Finally, Larry spotted what was going on and put his arm around me and said, no, she doesn't want to dance.  Fred danced with him, and then security came and told the man that he had to go.  They came out of nowhere, so I guess there are security cameras everywhere.

So, here is the light show.  Enjoy!

I enjoy the change of pace on Fremont street compared to the strip. I also appreciate that the light show changes so every time I go it's a new experience.

Hi Grace, the whole experience was so cool, except for that guy, he worried me.

Thank you, Deirdra!

Spenc ... me too. The strip wears me out. Too much walking, for one thing. If we go again, I want to stay at the Golden Nugget and go down that awesome waterslide. Thanks so much for stopping by to say hi!

No Copying!

I LOVE THE STATE OF OREGON.
