A celebration is in order for the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Las Vegas!

I stopped around town and learned that the iconic replica of the Paris, France, monument turns 20 this year. To celebrate, the team at Caesars Entertainment is gifting it with a new light show. Starting this week, locals and tourists can check out the daily dazzling show featuring 300 color spotlights, and more than 800 strobe lights.

The upgrade to the Eiffel Tower cost $1.7M, and will be a daily show.

Caears Entertainment Regional President, Gary Selesner is thrilled with the new upgrade.

"For people who come from all over world to have a little piece of what they can get in Paris, France right here in Las Vegas. We're really excited, and we know people are going to enjoy it!"

The new show will run every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour.
