The lights the sounds the entertainment of Las Vegas is coming to downtown Greensburg at the annual Party at the Palace event on February 23rd.
If you’ve ever wanted to experience the beauty and lights of Las Vegas without traveling there, this weekend is your chance! Party at The Palace Vegas Style is this Saturday, February 23rd and they are upping the ante and bringing the style and swagger of Vegas to Greensburg!
The annual Party at the Palace, a fundraiser and biggest event the Westmoreland Cultural Trusts holds, has evolved over the years. Originally the event was Hollywood Party at The Palace, but after 10 years the WTC decided to revamp to be Party at The Palace. The theme the last few years has been more of a 4 parties in one idea, in 2017, there were 4 themed areas, like Pints and Pies, Cocktails and Cabaret, with food and beverages to enhance it. In 2018, it was all about the seasons, with each season showcased, with areas transformed into fall, winter, spring and summer with decorations, lights, food and drink.
“The volunteer event committee has been working hard to add extra elements of fun to compliment this year’s Vegas theme. Each guest will be given fun money upon arrival to play various games, or they can be turned in for raffle tickets and chances at nominal prizes,” said Kelli Brisbane, Director of Corporate Engagement and Events of the Westmoreland Cultural Trust.
“Just like in Vegas, various performers will entertain guests throughout the evening including Elton John, Elvis and Lady Gaga tribute artists. The Stage Right Sensations will return once again and we are thrilled to welcome into our line-up The Moment, a local Jazz band who were part of our 1st Annual Downtown Greensburg Music Fest.”
The 2019 event launches with a 6:30 PM VIP Party on stage sponsored by Creenan Baczkowski & Assoc., PC.
