50-foot showgirls coming to north Strip

Updated August 3, 2022 - 10:31 am

In Las Vegas, it seems everything always needs to be made bigger and better than it was before.

The city of Las Vegas plans to install 50-foot showgirls at the site of a city display at South Las Vegas Boulevard and South Main Street that will soar even higher above the sidewalk roulette table and dice below them, according to a tweet.

The original showgirls next to The Strat were first added to the Strip in 2018 as part of a $400,000 sign display to welcome guests into downtown Las Vegas. They were modeled after showgirls that would accompany former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman to events.

The 25-foot showgirls will be moved to the Arts District near South Las Vegas Boulevard and South Fourth Street.

There is no date set for when the new showgirls will be finished, but the opening is expected to be some time in late summer this year, according to a city news release.
