Las Vegas Welcomes 2016 with Spectacular Fireworks Celebration
LAS VEGAS -- Revelers from around the world gathered in Las Vegas to ring in 2016 under a sky lit up with a dazzling fireworks extravaganza. While visitors celebrated across the destination -- from the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, on Las Vegas Boulevard and under the brilliant canopy of the Fremont Street Experience -- the stunning pyrotechnic display was launched from the rooftops of seven iconic resorts. Fireworks by Grucci produced the display, which burst into the sky from atop the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, ARIA Resort & Casino, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Caesars Palace, Treasure Island, The Venetian, and Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower, while hundreds of thousands watched from below.
Las Vegas News Bureau staff captured the sights and sounds of the celebration from the House of Blues Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay, the LINQ Vortex, Trump Hotel Las Vegas, the Fremont Street Experience, and on Las Vegas Boulevard.
