After what seems to be ill-spirited ticketing by police in Hollywood, street characters are making a semi exodus to Las Vegas where their costumes and methods are currently more well received. Batman, Spiderman, showgirls and every other type of character you can think of will be on Las Vegas' streets, so head out and take a picture with them and make a superhero's day.
One more sign that the Fremont East Entertainment District is starting to come of age: Those superhero and other characters that populate the Fremont Street Experience were seen last weekend near Fremont and Sixth streets.
One of them is “showgirl” Cassandra Rachal, who poses for pictures with tourists. She says she is one about 200 of the characters who moved from their traditional space in front of the former Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood to Las Vegas after L.A. police started arresting and ticketing them for panhandling and improper licensing in 2010.
