The Summer of í69 festival, currently underway in downtown Las Vegas, offers a--shall we say, diverse?--array of niceties for the tourist. Whether you're into music, food, light shows or general hippie nostalgia, hereís one attraction to take note of - a balloon exhibit at the Vegas Club.

Located toward the back of the casino, the Vegas Club isnít one of the major properties in the bustling and ever developing downtown area, but you gotta give them credit for getting into the spirit of this Summer themed party with gusto. There is a surprising amount of verve and style to it all. Some examples? The counter girl at a promotions kiosk has donned love beads while the pit boss is wearing a psychedelic t-shirt (Seriously. For Real.),

As for the balloon exhibit, we ask you to push aside your natural apprehension (how exciting can a balloon exhibit be?) and your childhood abandonment issues (they either popped or flew away from you) and take in the fun, because it really is amusement in a minor key if you happen to be in the area.

Balloons of all shapes and colors will be expanded and collected into sculptures that will be anything from a "Peace Out" design to a moon landing replication. Exhibits will change from month to month, but two things remain constant: 1) it makes for a fun, if goofy photo opportunity, and 2) itís free.

If you manage to snap a picture of a pit boss in a psychedelic t-shirt, um...we want. Send it to us!
