JACKPOT CITY, LAS VEGAS, 1963

Jackpot City

A just-about-to-turn-night sky glows over the most colorful and electrified downtown on the planet. Welcome to Fremont Street where the dusk-to-dawn display of lights is more than impressive — it’s empowering! The winking, blinking, flashing and glittering lights are magnetic and intoxicating, ultimately seducing us to gamble.

Miraculously some of this classic neon is still there, including Vegas Vic, who’s been perched on the front side of the Pioneer Club for 60 years. He is an American cultural treasure to behold. NO question about that!

Here’s to MONA, vintage neon and YOU!!!
