Vintage Vegas New Year’s Eve Party–Last Minute Tickets Still Available!

Ron Decar's Elegant Event Center with a vintage piano bar atmosphere, live entertainment, gourmet catering

Right next door to all the activity of the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapels is our RonCar’s Event Center, named for chapel co-owner and sometimes, Elvis, Ron DeCar, of course! Here’s where lavishly elegant wedding receptions take place, as well as convention parties, live performances of every genre, and even large weddings and celebrations of life. For New Year’s Eve, the Event Center takes on a vintage Vegas vibe, with live singers, dancers, dancing, dining–all under the canopy of Strip fireworks at midnight. Watch the fireworks over the nearby Stratosphere tower or stay warm inside and watch live on our big screens!

A few tickets are still available if you haven’t made plans and want to practically step back in time to bring in the New Year with old Vegas style! Parking is just footsteps from the Event Center, so you won’t have to deal with the crowds and parking garage traffic on the Strip during the craziest, busiest night of the year! All the details are posted below:

A Gorgeous Desert Wedding in Red Rock Canyon Outside Las Vegas

Wedding ceremony against red rock desert background outside Las Vegas

One of our most lavish outdoor weddings at Viva Las Vegas Weddings transports you to the stunning landscape of Red Rock Canyon, just outside the city. Our nearly all-inclusive Beautiful Red Rock Canyon Wedding package whisks you and your bride/groom away from your hotel in a luxurious stretch limo where you will meet your minister, photographer/videographer and any guests who didn’t ride along with you. Your flowers will be waiting for you, too! (You’ll need to pay a Park Service fee and tip your driver, but otherwise we’ll take care of all the rest.)
