There are a variety of programs featured during the six-minute shows:  This one is about aliens from Area 51.  The first light show opened on December 15, 1995.
 
 
The crowd is gathered watching the giant television above them.  All the lights of Glitter Gulch are turned off prior to each show.  It's estimated twenty-five thousand people attend the free shows nightly.

Flightlinez is a new attraction on the FSE that opened in October, 2010.  People zipline from a platform 60-feet tall located on the east-side of 4th St. 

 

Passengers travel down an 800-foot long wire doing about 25 mph.  This is a view of the landing platform. 

  
 

Here, two adventurers are being unharnessed from the zipline.  The landing platform is 14-feet high

Witch and ghost effigies hang from the rafters at the Fremont Street Experience during October, 2010.  Meanwhile, a hearse is parked between Fitzgerald's and the 4 Queens.

Many things can be found along the FSE:  Bars, souvenirs shops, pizza joints, kiosks selling cameras, Mardi Gras beads, jewelry; there are people dressed up as Michael Jackson, Austin Powers, and Spongebob  ... there are even fortune tellers in old wooden wagons (like the one seen in the far right of this photo).  You never know what you will see or experience on Fremont Street!
