Yep. Basically, they have neon floats that run along a track overhead in one section of the Rio's casino. You can pay to ride in the floats, I believe, and they let you throw beads to the crowd below. Lots of Mardi Gras type music playing and entertainers walk through the casino, interacting with the crowd. I believe there's also a short dance show on a small stage near the bar in that area of the casino.

Oh, and it's very loud when it's going on.

I enjoyed it when it was the Carnival Show. Now I think it is called "show in the sky" or something. It is now a more adult type show.

I saw tons of kids with their parents who did not realize that the show had changed. I liked the old show and the old music.

Watch yor pockets and your slot machine.

An event like this is made for an opportunist thief.

I've seen it many times, but don't think I'd ever want to be in it! It's entertaining....but after you've seen it a few times it kind of loses the magic.

We enjoyed it. But I agree about watching your wallet!

would you say it is worth the trip the the RIO for the show and a trip up to Voodoo to watch the sun go down?? Looked on-line and saw that sunset is around 7:00-7:10.... seems really early to someone in the Great North.... is that accurate?

travelgirlie....I love gambling at the RIo, so for me it would be worth the trip. I haven't done VooDoo but have heard really good things about it!

What time of year are you going? The sun was still out at 7 pm last week....not dark by a long shot!

Hmmm....it was closer to 7:45 pm-ish when we were just there, but according to that calendar it drops back pretty drastically at the end of August, so if it's true it may be that early for September. I'd get there early so you can have a drink while you wait! =)
