Resorts, businesses plan to 'Dim Lights for Tark' Wednesday
News

 LAS VEGAS — The lights on the Las Vegas Strip will be dimmed in observance of former UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian following Wednesday's UNLV vs. Boise State game.

The lights are expected to be turned off at 10:30 p.m. and remain off until 10:33 p.m. The movement began after a social media push in the days after his death.

Tarkanian will be the eighth person the lights of the Strip have been dimmed for. The previous seven observances include: President John F. Kennedy, Elvis, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, George Burns, Frank Sinatra and President Ronald Reagan. 

Beginning in 2009, the lights of the Strip have been dimmed annually in March for Earth Hour.
