Welcome Sign Honors St. Patrick’s Day

Fri, Mar 15, 2019 (12:36 p.m.)

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority (LVCVA) in partnership with Tourism Ireland have created a very special Irish welcome by turning the famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign green by replacing the traditional yellow bulbs with green ones. As the world gears up for St. Patrick’s Day, the iconic Betty Willis-designed sign turned green on Thursday, March 14, kicking off this weekend’s celebrations and Tourism Ireland’s ‘Global Greening’ 2019 initiative. The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign will stay green through March 17 in honor of all things Irish.
