LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Las Vegas Strip is packed as hundreds of thousands of people are in town to celebrate Super Bowl weekend.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau predicts 311,000 people from all over the world to visit Las Vegas over the weekend. Most hotel rooms and watch parties are sold out, too.

The Venetian and Palazzo hotels are just two hotels booked to capacity, and that's been their status for months. Nate Gray, spokesperson for the hotels, says Super Bowl weekend is an event that brings groups of people back year after year.

"It's a tradition for them to come back to Vegas to watch the game together, no matter who's playing," Gray said.

The LVCVA predicts Super Bowl weekend to bring in $106.8 million to our local economy.
