Bellagio Fountains Turned On as Vegas Reopens Casinos

The fountains outside Las Vegas’ Bellagio Hotel & Casino were fired up again on June 4 as casinos in Sin City opened for the first time since March.

This video was posted by Clark County, where Las Vegas is the county seat. The Bellagio was scheduled to open at 10 am local time.

Locals gathered to watch the fountains — made famous in movies including Oceans 11 — when they were turned on.

The coronavirus pandemic has all but ground the hospitality and entertainment industry in Las Vegas to a halt. In April, the number of visitors to Las Vegas fell 97 percent, according to data from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. Credit: Clark County via Storyful
