The cicada rhythms of doors (ka-thunk), trunks (ka-thunk) and tailgates (ka-thunk) latching back into place were the sonic template of the Motor Trend International Auto Show Las Vegas Sept. 13-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s South Hall – a vast and, frankly, shiny landscape of more than 350 cars, trucks and SUVs dutifully attended to by a quiet army of shammy men, polishing up new rides from Toyota, Hyundai, Honda, Dodge, Chrysler, and a dozen more.
A long-ago revolt’s legacy has yielded a reason for revelry. Mexican Independence Day, Sept. 16, marks the moment in 1810 when Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, aka Father Hidalgo, called for Mexicans to enter armed battle to end three centuries of Spanish rule. Events including many concerts by top Latino singers and musicians, will enable a weekend of proper celebration throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
SLIDESHOW: Throughout the weekend, revelers enjoyed concerts and performances in celebration of Mexican Independence. Here’s a look at some of the performances, including: Luis Miguel at Caesars Palace, Alejandro Fernández at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, Café Tacvba at Mandalay Bay Beach, Gloria Trevi with Karol G at Zappos Theater in the Planet Hollywood, Olmeca at The LINQ Promenade, and the Rancho High School Mariachi Oro de Rancho and Ballet Folklorico Sol de Rancho at McCarran International Airport.
