It’s a Festivus for the restivus in Vegas. Details on this strange but fun holiday celebration at Bally’s Grand Bazaar Shops below.

Press release:

Grand Bazaar Shops invites guests to get their holiday party started by its Festivus Gathering on Dec. 23. Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa get all the attention but Festivus is an important holiday steeped in tradition since 1997, which the outdoor shopping attraction will celebrate in an afternoon full of fun.

The center will feature the appropriate décor including a Festivus pole and the popular tradition of “feats of strength.” Guests will be challenged to lift a 100 lbs. dumbbell high above their head showing how strong they are and complimentary photos will be taken of participant’s completing the challenge. Guests who participate in the Festivus feat of strength will receive free Starbucks drink samples and Grand Bazaar Shops coupon books.

The Festivus gathering will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 23 from noon to 4 p.m. and activities will be offered in the center’s Grand Allée.

If you’re under 40 you may not be familiar with Festivus. Here’s the story of Festivus from Seinfeld.

Fireworks Return To Red Rock Resort And Green Valley Ranch On July 4th

ICYMI, people love fireworks.

Station Casinos brings in the heavyweights of fireworks, the Grucci family, to do their 4th of July fireworks show. “If you’re not going to hire the Grucci’s to do your fireworks show you shouldn’t bother”, says the guy who grew up with the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks show in New York City.

Fireworks will go for 9 minutes at 9pm a both Red Rock Resort and Green Valley Ranch. Caesars Palace has done 4th of July fireworks on the Vegas Strip in the past but hasn’t made an official announcement yet.

Caesars Entertainment is probably too busy cleaning up the poop pipes that broke at The Linq over the weekend. I’ll just tweet that info when it comes out. Enjoy the best of the Red Rock fireworks video I could find on the YouTube.

Update: Stratosphere announced that will have fireworks at 9:15 sharp.
