Clark County commissioners passed an ordinance Tuesday, banning dangerous objects on the strip.
The new ordinance applies to everyone, but it's likely to have a deeper effect on some of the performers who line the sidewalks of Las Vegas Boulevard. Those who use fire, swords, or even a power generator will have to come up with a plan B.
"Some performers have really great acts, and I don't think they're causing problems on the streets. They're bringing entertainment to people," said Brian Petre, who poses for photos on the strip as Alan and baby Carlos from the movie, The Hangover.
Petre has been performing on Las Vegas Boulevard for just under a year, and he likes the freedom.
Clark County commissioners, however, voted to effectively ban dangerous objects, including, but not limited to the following: electrical cords, wires, fire, fireworks, swords, knives, skateboards, even power generators and batteries.
