Welcome Sign Going Green
Welcome Sign Going Green

The iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign turned green in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

The sign that has welcomed visitors to the Las Vegas Strip for years was turned green Wednesday night by former city of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and Kathryn Thomas, a judge from the Irish TV show "The Voice Ireland."

The sign is one of several iconic structures around the world that is going green for St. Patrick's Day, including the Pyramids of Giza, the Leaning Tower of Piza and the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janiero.

The color change is part of a partnership between the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Tourism Ireland.

This is not the first time the sign has switched its color. It was turned pink in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. That same month it turned purple to show solidarity against bullies.
