On Route-66 Lights illuminate West Hollywood...

There's always something interesting happening in The City of West Hollywood, whether it's Gay Pride Parades, the annual Halloween Carnaval or an invasion of giant guitars on The Sunset Strip.

This time it's the turn of some classic neon signs to light up the streets, in conjunction with the Museum of Neon Art to help celebrate West Hollywood's 25th Anniversary of Cityhood.

If you love outdoor sculptures you'll also find some fantastic colourful, geometric sculptures in West Hollywood by Peter Shire, near the city boundary with Beverly Hills, plus some impressive massive art installations outside the Pacific Design Center.

These new neon lights first piqued my interest way back at the end of May this year when they first appeared.

It took some time, but they are now fully working and light up at night to add some intrigue and interest along WEHO's busy Santa Monica Boulevard.

I hope you enjoy these photos of the lights by day and night, just in case you don't get a chance to see these new additions to West Hollywood's eclectic landscape yourself.

My favourite light is this perky diver in red, she certainly makes for an eye-catching sight by day or night...
