Celebrate 60 Outstanding Years of the Riviera Hotel & Casino with #RivFacts
With its doors closing to the public at noon on Monday, May 4, 2015, the renowned Riviera Hotel & Casino is counting down the final eight weeks with a look back at some of the highlights, fun facts, celebrity sightings and rarely-seen photos that have helped build the iconic stature of the Las Vegas Strip’s first high-rise hotel and casino (Pictured: Michael Jackson and Mark Sterbens, former VP of the Riviera Hotel & Casino – Photo credit: Riviera Hotel & Casino)

Week two of #RivFacts celebrates the “King of Pop,” who, in 1984, casted and signed his handprints in cement for a Las Vegas “Walk of Fame” project in front of the Riviera Hotel & Casino.

The “Walk of Fame” existed for many years and featured handprints from some of the world’s biggest celebrities, including Dolly Parton, Smothers Brothers, Robert Goulet, Sugar Ray Leonard and Don King, among others.

Celebrating 60 years of non-stop entertainment, the Riviera Hotel & Casino is one of the most iconic casino and hotel destinations in Las Vegas. For more information on the Riviera’s amenities, visit Find Riviera Hotel & Casino on Facebook and follow on Twitter.
