Sirens

Happy 4th of July - for those of us in the USA, this is Independence Day, when we celebrate the founding of the country. Although I don't have any fireworks photos to post, here are some shots with fire, explosions, and other hot things, taken from Sirens, the free Treasure Island show. It's held several times each night outside the front of the hotel.

The hotel uses it to attract people into the casino. Of course these lovely young ladies dancing on the ship are a big part of the show.
But there is a plot involving a second ship with pirates!
And of course there's plenty of smoke...
... fire...
... explosions and stunts...
... and of course, fireworks!
It was actually quite fun to watch. And it's my My World Tuesday entry for the week.

  15. Congratulations on a happy July 4th! I visited this place a decade ago on family trip. There were so much smoke and fire and explosions. But now they seem to have much more smoke, fire and explosions. Happy memory came back to me!
    Thanks for sharing great photos and story.
    Have a wonderful day!

  23. Interesting, and very good, photos. I was reminded that we humans have some very strange habits. We certainly do find unusual ways to entertain ourselves. Especially in Los Vegas!
