LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — American internet entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Tony Hsieh’s legacy lives on throughout much of the downtown Las Vegas area and this weekend it’s only fitting that a tribute to his life will be celebrated there as well.
According to the Downtown Vegas Alliance’s Instagram page, the special tribute will be held between 7th Street and Carson Avenue, on Saturday, December 11 from 4:00 p.m. to midnight.
The celebration will include an art car showcase, food trucks, and bars.
Fremont Street Experience will also be remembering Hsieh’s life on the canopy screen. It will display a video at 8 p.m. just before the normal Viva Vision Show.
The Killers was one of Hsieh’s favorite bands and their song “Human” was his favorite song. The one-minute video features the song “Human” in the background along with a montage of images.
Sunday, Dec. 12 would have been Hsieh’s 48th birthday.
The retired Zappo’s CEO passed away in a Connecticut house fire in November 2020.
Hsieh had lived the last few months of his life in Utah and was working on several projects there.
