Carnival Fun and Games

The Neon Carnival is renowned not just for its guest list but also for its array of thrilling carnival rides and engaging games. The iconic Ferris Wheel offered guests a stunning view of the festival lights and the desert sky, while other rides provided exhilarating entertainment. The free games were a hit, with attendees vying for prizes in a friendly and festive environment.

Exclusive Tastes and Toasts

The carnival was also an opportunity for LIQUID I.V. to showcase their latest offerings. Guests exclusively sampled two new flavors: the Hydration Multiplier Popsicle® Firecracker and the Sugar-Free Hydration Multiplier in Rainbow Sherbet. Adding a sophisticated touch to the night’s drink selections, PATRÓN EL ALTO featured prominently as the official tequila partner. The premium tequila, derived from the finest 100% Weber Blue Agave, was the base for specialty cocktails enjoyed under the glow of neon lights and starry skies.

Music that Moves

Accompanying the night’s revelries were DJ Pee Wee (Anderson Paak), James Keen, and DJ Honey Bee, whose sets provided the perfect soundtrack to the evening. Their music, ranging from upbeat tracks to more mellow tunes, ensured that the dance floors were never empty.

A Coveted Celebration

Maintaining its status as an exclusive event, the Neon Carnival continues to be a closed gathering for celebrities, industry insiders, and influencers, along with their guests.
