The Plaza Hotel & Casino will host its annual Independence Day party on Saturday, June 30 at 7 p.m. on its fully renovated rooftop pool.
At the party, which is free to attend, guests can swim or relax poolside while a DJ plays crowd favorites. The party will also feature a hot dog eating contest, a festive drink special and made-to-order poolside fare from the Pool at the Plaza Food Truck. The festivities will culminate with a spectacular fireworks show lighting up the downtown skyline at 10 p.m.
At 8 p.m., the Plaza Hotel & Casino will host downtown Las Vegas’ first-ever hot dog eating contest in the style of the famous event held annually at Coney Island. The winner of the contest will receive a grand prize valued at more than $1,000 that includes $200 cash, a 2-night stay at the Plaza, a free cabana rental plus a $50 food and beverage credit, $150 to Oscar’s steakhouse, two tickets to “A Mob Story” opening in July, breakfast at Brightside Breakfast & Burgers and match play. The contest, sponsored in part by Hoffy Hot Dogs, will be limited to 10 participants, 21 years of age or older. Registration is open online until June 20.
A festive holiday drink special will be available at the Pool at the Plaza’s cocktail bar. Guests can buy one, get one free of the Firework cocktail (a red, white & blue mix of Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada Rum and Blueberry Lemonade Vodka for $12). The pool bar will also offer a selection of frozen and specialty cocktails as well as beer and wine.
Guests will also enjoy made-to-order poolside fare from the Pool at the Plaza Food Truck, including a Taco Trio, nachos, chicken fingers, burger, BLT, or hot dog and a selection of fresh salads and sides.
At the end of the night, the Plaza will shoot live fireworks from multiple rooftop locations at approximately 10 p.m. The show will last approximately 4 minutes, and while the best views will be from the Plaza’s rooftop pool party, the fireworks will no doubt be seen in the sky for miles around.
