Paris Hilton’s CD release party was like a carnival

PARIS HILTON’S CD release block party went off in the alley between the Imperial Palace and Flamingo. The day began with a proclamation “Paris Hilton Day” and the ultimate text message, five planes skywriting “Congrats on your CD Paris.” Then an evening filled with a carnival of acts included go-go dancers, sword swallowers, light-bulb eaters, a lady who rolls around in glass, a man who can jump rope with three girls on his back, human jugglers, a man who balances stoves on his chin, hand balancers, contortionists, little people, live bands, spring jumpers, stilt walkers, monkeys, goats and more. The party moved indoors to PURE nightclub at Caesar’s Palace, and on into the wee hours at the opening of Beacher’s Rockhouse Bar at the Imperial Palace.

STOMP, the international percussion sensation where musicians/dancers use common items like garbage cans to make music, is having open auditions all this month in Vegas. The production is getting ready for a new show opening March at Planet Hollywood. For more details, visit us online at,.
