We did not see any of the show "stars" except this cardboard one! Ray and I also tried to check out Kounts Custom, but the entrance is in an alley with a gate keeper out front, so no go.
Ray spent the rest of the day laying down in preparation of tonight's adventure. At 5 pm after walking Freya we were off to the Strip. We'd decided to self-park at the Aria Casino as it was only a short distance to our dinner destination "Bobby's Burger Palace" for his wonderful burgers and milkshakes. We were not disappointed. The burgers were reasonably priced but once you added sides "chips" and a milkshake at $6.50 a piece it became much more expenseive ($45 for two burgers and drinks!). Oh well. Still one of the cheaper good food on the strip.
With full tummies we started our adventure up the strip to take some pictures of the Excalibur and New York New York. The night lights are fabulous along the strip, I am glad we got a chance to see them.

Beside the Aria Hotel is The Shops at Crystals. Their gardens are lovely. It didn't look like much during the day but now!!!
We carried on down the strip towards the Bellagio and Paris Casinos in preparation of seeing the Bellagio fountain for the 7 pm show. We needed to get into place before it starts.

Ray's video ... almost 4 minutes long.
Once that was over we had about 1/2 an hour to get down to the Mirage Casino's Volcano eruption for 8 pm. Ray took some more pictures of the lights on the way.

The volcanic eruptions seemed quite real. You could feel the heat from the flames and spray from the water.
Ray's video of the eruption is about 2 1/2 minutes long.
