Sexy starlet Claire Sinclair, who is always seen in stockings and suspenders in her adult-burlesque headliner show “Pin Up” at Stratosphere, has been named Queen of the Las Vegas Halloween Parade.
Her Majesty will be crowned downtown Thursday night as Day of the Dead celebrations wake up the entire Las Vegas Valley. It’s the fourth-annual parade, and Claire will ride her festive route in Henry Chang’s Mister Fusion Art Car.
BTW, today is the 75th anniversary of the 1938 radio hoax by Orson Welles of an alien invasion based on “War of the Worlds” that tricked rather than treated hundreds of thousands of listeners.
Halloween this year is a holiday that’s encompassed two weekend of Las Vegas revelry, including last weekend’s Fetish & Fantasy Ball in the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel to the private party the curvy X Burlesque” dancers at the Flamingo threw for their striptease colleagues at the D Las Vegas’ “Raack and Roll” and the Rio’s “X Rocks.”
