mopar - what??

Okay, at the risk of sounding really dumb what is MOPAR? I did I search & found some info but not enough. Apr. 1-3 will overlap my time there & I'm wondering if staying off the strip might be a plan...

How many people does this bring into town?

How will it affect someone like me who just wants to gamble, see some shows, relax at the pool, eat some good meals - i.e.: will stuff be booking up because of it?

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

MOPAR is a major event dealing with Dodge, Plymouth type vehicels at the Las Vegas Speedway. It is March 31 - April 3. A big event that will fill up the north side of Las Vegas first - and a good part of the strip. If you are finding our rates on the strip to high look to off strip casino properties like Orleans or Station Casinos. Palace Station is on Sahara at I-15 - easy access and short distance to the strip, usully has reasonable rates.

The car show is called Mopars at the Strip, but the actual event takes place at the LV motor speedway, not at the strip.

A few years ago, I didn't know what Mopar meant either. I am now married to a Mopar (dodge/plymouth/chrysler) nut. Guess when we will be in Vegas?!? :o)
