March Madness returns to Las Vegas with a big splash at Circa

Updated March 19, 2021 - 6:30 pm

A few thousand visitors dived into March Madness in the Stadium Swim area inside the Circa in downtown Las Vegas on Friday.

The NCAA Tournament men’s tournament, which was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, tipped off with its first full slate of games Friday.

The Circa, downtown’s newest resort, opened to business last fall. The Circa says Stadium Swim has a 4,000 person capacity across 337 chaise lounges, 30 private cabanas and 38 day beds. The area features six pools and a 40-foot HD screen.

And the weather was near perfect for Stadium Swim – sunny with light winds and a high of 80 degrees.

The Stadium Swim pool deck has been open to guests since October. Las Vegas’ pool season kicked off earlier this month.
