AT THE LINQ PROMENADE
Festive Activities Include a Parade, Food and Drink Specials
and Live Entertainment on Saturday, March 17
LAS VEGAS (February 2018) – A sea of green will cascade over The LINQ Promenade on Saturday, March 17, as thousands of revelers celebrate at the annual O’Sheas BLOQ Party – the free St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the heart of Las Vegas. This year’s event will be sponsored in part by Royalty Exotic Car Rentals.
The festive party – centered around the iconic Irish-themed casino and pub, O’Sheas Casino – will offer a traditional St. Patrick’s Day celebration with a Vegas-style twist. Activities include a raucous St. Paddy’s parade, Irish-inspired food and drink specials, beer overflowing and live entertainment throughout The LINQ Promenade.
Events begin at 9 a.m. with a Bagpiper Breakfast, when a bagpiper band will roam the Promenade entertaining early-bird partiers with stops at O’Shea’s, Off The Strip Bistro & Bar, Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar, Tilted Kit Pub & Eatery, Flour & Barley – Brick Oven Pizza, Virgil’s Real BBQ and Canter’s Deli.
At noon, a boisterous parade led by a green, brand-new Bugatti from Royalty Exotic will march through the open-air entertainment district, offering spectators a lively celebration of the popular holiday. An Irish b-boy dance troupe will join the parade this year, along with bagpipers (who will bring out the LED for the parade for the evening performances), leprechauns, stilt walkers and Irish dancers.
Live performances will continue throughout the day at the BLOQ Party along The LINQ Promenade, which concludes at 10 p.m. Additional entertainment on the Promenade will include celebrity beer pong and large-screen TVs broadcasting the college basketball championships. Meanwhile, O’Sheas will host a lineup of live entertainment including Roxy Gunn, Silversage, Darby O’Gill and DJs, as well as drink specials, inside the pub, ensuring a rollicking good time for all until 3 a.m.
An abundance of spirits will be available all day including green beer (of course!), Irish-themed cocktails and pop-up beer trucks to ensure the flowing of celebratory suds. Food specials will be available at participating restaurants including Irish favorites such as corned beef, shepherd’s pie and a St. Paddy’s-themed pizza.
No LINQ Promenade party would be complete without the illumination of the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, which will be lit in green beginning at sunset.
