Masquerade in the Sky at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino

The $25 million extravaganza features dozens of vibrantly lighted "Mardi Gras"-style parade floats moving along 750 feet of ceiling track some 20 feet above visitors on the casino floor. Elaborately costumed performers sing and dance to lively music as they toss plastic bead necklaces from the floats to onlookers below and to spectators on the balconies fronting restaurants and stores. The free Carnivale-themed show is repeated several times throughout the afternoon and evening. Visitors may ride the Mardi Gras floats for a small fee.
