This is the highlight of the street, there is a voice output devices of 550 000 watts and 12.5 million LCD modules line the roof of the street.
When is it best to get here? In the evening go with the submission of 20.30 in the weekends, they may start a little earlier. Typically, the light show takes about 5-6 minutes, begins in the early hours. At this point, the street is blocked, the machine cannot pass the middle. A set of such diverse shows, you have enough hours to see two shows at the same time and walk. In recent visits to Fremont the show cut songs by Mercury, very incendiary. During the weekend, here between the light shows are representations of local groups, a lot of animation and live pieces on the street. At the end of the street is a bar at the front on the street dancing girls making the show more incendiary. There are many souvenir shops, but you cannot pass by without seeing them.
