  • Originally designed by Charles F. Bernard, Vegas Vickie took her place on the world-famous Fremont Street Experience in 1980, welcoming visitors from the rooftop of Bob Stupak’s Glitter Gulch Casino. Derek gingerly brought her down in 2016 and sent her to Las Vegas-based sign company YESCO for a multi-year refurbishment. Through research including Mr. Bernard’s original drawings, great care was given to put her back to her original paint and neon color scheme. The sign now lives as a signature art piece in Circa’s lobby.

    Additional details on the works and other utility features will be shared in the coming weeks.

    Future utility and gamification will be announced in the coming months.
