Clark County Commissioners and representatives from Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) turned the world-famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign red for World AIDS Day Thursday.
The first World AIDS Day was held in 1988. The county commission and others are showing their support by turning landmarks, signs and buildings red.
The light bulbs, which are usually yellow, surround the border of the sign.

In addition to the sign, several marquees and the Fremont Street canopy also went red.
