Welcome to Las Vegas sign goes purple for domestic violence

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Oct 21, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The world famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign turned purple for a special occasion.

Clark County commissioners flipped the switch on Monday morning.

The purple lights were installed on the sign to coincide with the annual "Take Back the Night" event on Wednesday to remember victims of domestic and sexual violence.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
