During December and through the National Western Stock Show, this building, built in 1932, boasts one of the country's finest and largest illumination displays. More than five miles of electrical wire suspend over 20,000 lights over the building's facade. The opulent building, along with numerous boulevards and parks, including Civic Center Park, added to Mayor Robert Speer's City Beautiful vision to create a Paris on the plains. In honor of the popular mayor, who served a series of terms in the early 1900s, the Tower Clock atop the City and County Building chimes every quarter hour.
