Viva Vision
"American Freedom"

FSE is a corporate venture conceived in the 1990's as a way to draw tourists to the ailing historic "downtown" hotels/casinos of Las Vegas. FSE is a five-block-long pedestrian mall covered by a unique barrel-vault canopy 90 feet high with the underside made up of a high-tech LED motion-picture screen.

The shows are free and can be viewed from any location or angle on the promenade.The original "Fremont Street Experience Sound & Light Show" contained 2.1 million bulbs. In 2004-2006, for $17 million the LG Corporation upgraded the canopy to 12.5 million synchronized LED modules, controlled by 10 computers in a central room.

“American Freedom” is a patriotic tribute the Red, White, and Blue. Filled with classic images of Americana and heart pounding drumbeats, all Fremont Street visitors will swell with pride as flags, eagles, mountains and prairies burst into view on the Viva Vision canopy. Don’t miss the jets flying overhead and the fireworks at the end!
