LAS VEGAS — How does a town that sells partying every day of the year throw a bash to ring in the New Year?
Las Vegas spends all year prepping for one night to wow an expected crowd of 340,000 people who will spend some $226 million.
There's the seven-minute, 11-second show of fireworks exploding above seven Strip resorts.
There are the prime viewing vantage points to see said fireworks. One view, from inside the Strip's newest observation wheel has a starting cost of $2,500.
For ticket-holders, there will be celebrity performances by pop star Jennifer Lopez and new duo Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. Big name DJs and musicians are promised at nightclubs, too.
And for those lucky enough — or very loyal to casinos — unrivaled invite-only parties await.
