Hooray for Hollywood! The hilltop sign, an unmistakable icon known worldwide, is turning 100 this year. And on this anniversary, we want to hear from you about your favorite memories of the landmark. 

Have you ever visited the sign, secretly or otherwise? Do you live nearby and curse the tourists, and are sick of hearing the loud speakers on the hill go off? Have you caught fireworks shows on the Fourth of July? 

Maybe you remember some of the infamous takeovers of the sign, including “Hollyweed” or the great Beverly Hills 90210 makeover of 1993?

Share your stories above, and we might reach out for an upcoming Greater LA story.
