EDC, Fight Night means big tourism weekend for Las Vegas

CREATED Jun. 10, 2012

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- With the Electric Daisy Carnival and fight night on the Strip, it's a big tourism weekend for Las Vegas.

It's also a big betting weekend. A lot of cash was being wagered on the boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley.

Also this weekend: The Belmont Stakes, game seven of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals and the NHL finals.

Tourists crowded the Strip, hoping to cash in.

Last year, the Electric Daisy Carnival pumped about $136 million into the Valley's economy.

The boxing match Saturday should account for $10 million, according to the Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Authority, all of that non-gaming revenue.
