LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The bright lights of Las Vegas got brighter over the holiday weekend as the city was full of events and visitors, giving businesses a much-needed financial boost.
Fun-filled afternoons by the pool led to spectacular firework shows at night as Las Vegas pulled out all of the stops over the holiday weekend.
Businesses at Downtown Container Park usually have more visitors during the cooler months but many say they saw a larger number of visitors this 4th of July weekend.
"We have been looking at the foot traffic numbers and we have had thousands of people come into the park. We’ve seen a lot more tourists. It’s usually a lot of locals but we’ve been seeing a lot of tourists," says Container Park General Manager James Gonzales
At Downtown Container Park you can enjoy great food and drink while checking out local boutiques and shops.
On the 4th they stayed open late and people were able to enjoy the fireworks and live entertainment.
The party continued into the next day.
"You can come in and grab some gelato or bubble tea to cool down but we have a lot of adults come in for the bottomless mimosas at Downtown Terrace. Also Oak & Ivy and Bin 702. It also doesn’t hurt to grab a taco and margarita from Pinches Tacos. We’ve definitely seen a higher amount of foot traffic in those areas. You can see it not just physically but revenue has increased as well," said Gonzales
Downtown Container Park is planning on bringing back favorites like their wine walks, beer walks, live entertainment and kids events as temperatures start to cool down.
In the meantime, they are still active in the local scene with live entertainment and vendors that you can check out here.
