Harley riders have their Sturgis in August, swallows have their San Juan Capistrano in March and partyers have their Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve.
And so it goes again tonight in signature Vegas fashion: the gathering of an estimated 300,000 celebrants along the Strip and at downtown’s Fremont Street Experience, and inside every casino along the way, with their party hats and beer bongs and ready for midnight kisses with loved ones and strangers alike.
A Las Vegas New Year’s Eve is unmatched among public parties — the freedom to roam, watch, listen and imbibe, framed beneath 88,000 computer-triggered fireworks off hotel rooftops and chased by headliners performing through the night.
Indeed, it’s just another over-the-top party in Vegas, Baby! as we celebrate the start of 2014.
