The City of Las Vegas’ new, 50-foot showgirls make their official debut tonight, lighting up at dusk.

Located at the corner of Main Street and Las Vegas Boulevard and built by YESCO signs, the historic company behind many of the city’s iconic neon installations, these new showgirls are twice as tall as the previous ones that were erected in 2018.

The new showgirls join the previously installed dice sculptures and sidewalk roulette table display to welcome visitors to Downtown Las Vegas.

According to the City of Las Vegas, the previous, 25-foot-tall showgirls are currently being refurbished because of weather damage. Once repaired, the old showgirls will be installed at Fourth Street and Las Vegas Boulevard in the Arts District this fall.
