LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Strong winds in Las Vegas on Thursday prompted a last-minute location change for a Vegas Golden Knights watch party at Circa hotel-casino and forced a few other events around the valley to cancel.
The Golden Knights watch party was originally planned for Stadium Swim, Circa's pool. The downtown resort says the event is still on but instead of being poolside, the watch party has moved to its Level 3 Fight Warehouse.
