Pegasus sign.

Big Neon Red Pegasus

This is one of two giant red Pegasuses in downtown Dallas. This one rotates at street level outside the convention center hotel. Really impressive to get the scale of the size of it!

Tip: For a different perspective go inside to the second level of the hotel.

The Pegasus sign is right outside of the Omni Hotel. Pretty cool to see on your way to the Reunion Tower.

[Stephen Lange, 03/25/2016]

Restored in May 2015, the 35x40-foot sign is now perched atop a squat oil derrick on the lawn of an upscale Dallas hotel. It's outlined in red neon and revolves slowly, once every five minutes.
