Las Vegas’ night sky was lit up with sparklers to commence the beginning of the dance party. Guests danced the night away underneath Bliss Dance, a 40-foot-tall statue by artist Marco Cochrane located in the heart of The Park. Other sights to be seen throughout the evening included a DJ encapsulated in a geometric sphere hovering above the crowd, as well as acrobatic performers entertaining guests with dazzling ribbon twirling and dancing.

Launched in Paris in 1988 by François Pasquier and a handful of friends, Le Dîner en Blanc has become a worldwide epicurean phenomenon. Dîner en Blanc – Paris now attracts over 10,000 people each year. What was a “friends and word-of-mouth only” event has grown into an international sensation celebrated on five continents. While the technology behind the event may have changed over the years, the principles fuelling this fantastic event have not: guests continue to gather at a secret location for the sole purpose of sharing a gourmet meal with good friends in one of their city’s most beautiful public spaces. Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Dîner en Blanc International is responsible for developing this secret posh picnic in over 70 cities in more than 25 countries around the world. Each event is headed by passionate local organizers who fell in love with the concept and wanted to bring it to their city, giving this rendezvous a local flair.
