Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas Resorts Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend with Military Specials and Events

Las Vegas (May 23, 2016)— Memorial Day Weekend is not only a time to honor those who have served but also marks the “unofficial start of the summer.” To celebrate the holiday weekend, Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts will be hosting parties featuring live entertainment, offering food and beverage specials and extending specialty discounts to military members.  Memorial Day weekend offerings include: 

Pool Parties/Events

R&B singer and actor, Sisqo, best known for his international hit, “Thong Song,” will be hosting at the GO Pool at Flamingo Las Vegas on Saturday, May 28. He will hit the stage at 2:30 p.m., so guests are encouraged to arrive early to get a prime spot. DJ Eric Forbes will get things started that day and drink specials include $5 off Coors Light buckets. Don’t miss DJ BritStar and DJ Tavo spinning on Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30.

MTN DEW® KICKSTART™ and The LINQ Hotel & Casino are teaming up for the MTN DEW KICKSTART Poolside Pre-Game at The POOL at The LINQ, a one of a kind, seven-weekend summer pool party series in Las Vegas featuring three awesome things: live musical performances, guest appearances and unique poolside services and beverages to kick start the night. The afternoon-into-early-evening series starts on Saturday, May 28, giving guests the opportunity to pre-game poolside. Pool-goers will be able to enjoy video games while relaxing in massage chairs, get a fresh look at the poolside hair stylist and try one of the newest flavors of MTN DEW KICKSTART at the 32-seat bar.

Bally’s Las Vegas’ lush pool escape, Blu Pool, will kick off its weekly Raft Race series, starting Saturday, May 28, and running every Saturday afternoon through Labor Day. At 4 p.m. every Saturday, guests can test their paddling power, with 1st place receiving a $100 food and beverage tab.

Not only Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino home to the Strip’s only stand-alone wave machine, the FlowRider, but the pools are the place to be for summer-long bikini contests. Guests can strut their stuff for a $2,500 cash prize. Celebrity judges include members from Chippendales and Crazy Girls. Bikini contests will take place at 3 p.m. every Saturday starting May 28. Miller Coors and Red Bull specials will be available all weekend long.
