Dozens of Las Vegas icons on the Strip turned purple Friday in support of Spirit Day, a national day dedicated to standing up against bullying and showing support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.
The famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign and the fountains at Caesars Palace changed color, along with the marquees at the MGM Grand, Wynn and Encore, Venetian and the Palazzo, Treasure Island, The Tropicana and the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. All of the resorts turned their signs purple for 15 minutes Friday morning.
The Fremont Street Experience will also show support for the effort by turning millions of lights in canopy purple at 10 p.m.
Caesars Entertainment also encouraged team members to wear purple in support of the LGBT community. Spirit Day is being promoted by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, or GLAAD.
