Synonymous with Las Vegas itself, this summer the world-renowned Caesars Palace® in Las Vegas is marking its 50th anniversary with a Summer of Caesars celebration beginning Friday, June 17 and extending throughout the year. The festivities will be highlighted with a weekend of celebration Aug. 5-6, 2016. The anniversary celebration will feature exciting sweepstakes, giveaways, a self-guided historical walking tour and photo exhibit, an interactive social photo experience, special room packages, 50th birthday offers, marquee events and more. The legendary resort set the standard when it first opened on Aug. 5, 1966 and today remains an incredible force at the center of the famous Las Vegas Strip.
“Unlike other famed Strip properties that have now been torn down and swept away, Caesars Palace is more relevant than ever,” said Mark P. Frissora, President and Chief Executive Officer of Caesars Entertainment. “With our portfolio of entertainment superstars and celebrity chefs, the recent room enhancements and new restaurant offerings, Caesars Palace is well poised for the next fifty years. We are excited to show our gratitude and share our 50th anniversary celebration with our guests, partners, employees and community.”

The aluminum-body 2015 Ford F-150 crew cab swept the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s full slate of crashworthiness evaluations to qualify for a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK award. The F-150 extended cab turned in a good performance in 4 of 5 assessments but stumbled in the small overlap front test. The results are the first ratings for large pickups in a group the Institute is evaluating this year.
The F-150 crew cab, which Ford calls the SuperCrew, earns good ratings for occupant protection in all five IIHS crashworthiness evaluations — small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations. The extended cab, or SuperCab, earns good ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations but just a marginal rating for occupant protection in a small overlap front crash.
