Celebrate Your Independence in Vegas This Fourth of July

The Las Vegas Strip resorts know how to put on a show, and Independence Day is no different. No city does Fourth of July fireworks quite like Las Vegas. There will be plenty of options around town to celebrate our nation’s 240th birthday all weekend long. So throw on your finest American flag swimwear, grab a red, white and blue daiquiri and head to one of these patriotic parties! It’s your civic duty!

Caesars Palace is putting on its biggest Fourth of July fireworks display ever this weekend. As part of the property's 50th anniversary "Summer of Caesars" celebrations, the fireworks begin Sunday, July 3, at approximately 9 p.m. The casino and resort always puts on an impressive fireworks display, but this one just might top them all.

You’ll have a good view of the show from just about anywhere on the Strip, but the LINQ Promenade in front of the High Roller is sure to be a good time. Beginning Friday, the outdoor entertainment and shopping district will offer daily parades, balloon artists, face painters, stilt walkers, carnival games and more. Directly across Las Vegas Boulevard from Caesars Palace, the LINQ Promenade will be a great place to watch the fireworks.

Nothing says “Happy b-day, Uncle Sam!” like a pool party with rock group 311 at Mandalay Bay Beach July 2 and 3. Both performances will be followed up by a fireworks display. Amber will most likely be the color of the fireworks.

Station Casinos' Palace Station will wow the city with their always impressive fireworks spectacular July 1 at 9 p.m. The celebration will coincide with the casino's 40th anniversary. The display will be synchronized to music that will be broadcast across the valley by local FM station 96.3 KKLZ.

There may be no better way to celebrate Independence Day than by attending a 51s game. This weekend, our local chapter of America’s pastime will set off the annual post-game fireworks “extravaganza” at approximately 9:45 p.m. The Las Vegas 51s are set to host the Salt Lake Bees Monday night with first pitch scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets start at $16.

Less than a 40-minute drive from the Strip, Lake Las Vegas—Wait, wait! Hear us out. This is going to be a cool event.—Lake Las Vegas will celebrate our independence on July 3 with beautiful fireworks set to live music from the Henderson Symphony Orchestra, which will of course be positioned on a floating stage on the lake. The public is invited to come early and enjoy live music in MonteLago Village. A variety of watercraft and water sport rentals and lessons are available, including electric Duffy boats, Flyboard, gondolas, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. The free event begins at 2 p.m. and culminates with fireworks at 8:40 p.m.

If you’re looking for more of a “Green Acres” feel this Fourth of July, travel out to historic Boulder City for the “Damboree Celebration.” The nearly 70-year-old event begins at Bicentennial Park, 1100 Colorado Street, at 7 a.m. Monday with the Rotary Pancake Breakfast. There will be a parade that starts at 9 a.m. It begins at Colorado Street, down Nevada Highway to Fifth Street, to Broadbent Memorial Park at Avenue B and Sixth Street. The two parks in town will be hosting revelers all afternoon, offering food, music and games. The fireworks display begins at 9 p.m. In true small town, there-must-be-a-great-story-behind-this fashion, water balloons are expressly prohibited at this year’s festivities.
