No city does the Fourth of July quite like Las Vegas. The city pulls out all the stops with fireworks displays all over town, events and parades to entertain the family and concerts to get you in the groove. Make the most of this three-day weekend at one of our Haute 5 Fourth of July events. You have Monday to recuperate.
When you want to check out the real McCoy, you have to go to one of five Station’s Casinos to see the 4th of July Blast. A nine-minute fireworks show produced by the Gruccis of New York, the masterminds behind fireworks events and past hotel-casino openings in Las Vegas, takes over the night skies at Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch resort, Fiesta Rancho and Texas Station as a shared location and Red Rock Resort. Get to one of these spots by 8:45 p.m. on Sunday, July 4, to see the biggest display of fireworks in the valley.
Red, White & Tunes

Join the 102-day promotion of the Fremont Street Experience as the canopied street presents the Summer of the ’70s in downtown Las Vegas.
