It was a jam-packed weekend for the 51 contestants in the 2013 Miss USA Pageant in Las Vegas that included a trek to Downtown Las Vegas on Friday and a meet-and-greet with the public at Chinese Laundry at Fashion Show mall and a little time for fun at Pure in Caesars Palace, both on Saturday.

2012 Miss USA Nana Meriwether and Miss USA contestants — those ages 21 and older, of course — took over mega-club Pure. The beauty queens hit the red carpet around 11:30 p.m. and posed for photographers. Making their way through the hotspot, the 25 gorgeous contestants took their place at a VIP table located on the left stage.

Upon arrival, the ladies danced and mingled with clubgoers. Later in the evening, Meriwether manned the decks in the DJ booth and quickly became guest DJ.

The weekend for the ladies also included a stop at The D Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas and photographs with owner Derek Stevens, who donned a very bright jacked, plus, for the ladies, they hosted a meet-and-greet at Chinese Laundry in Fashion Show mall.

Thanks to contributing photographers Tom Donoghue (The D), Erik Kabik of Retna (Chinese Laundry) and Patrick Prather of the Miss Universe Organization, the parent company of Miss USA, for their photo galleries.
