Signage lining South Las Vegas Boulevard Tuesday synchronized to read one unifying message to residents and tourists alike: "We've been there for you during the good times. Thank you for being there for us now. #VegasStrong"

The message was clad across casinos and hotels up and down The Strip, thanking the outpouring of support from all corners of the world following Sunday's mass shooting.

The #VegasStrong hashtag continued to go viral Tuesday, showing community members coming together to help donate their time, items, and their blood to support victims and their families following Sunday's shooting.


The message will be featured on marquees in Downtown and along The Strip for 24 hours starting Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m.

While traffic - both foot and road - weren't quite up to the levels Las Vegas is used to experiencing even on a Tuesday night, the signage and unifying call of #VegasStrong rang across social media:
