Celebrations Will Recognize Fourth of July and Return of Live Entertainment

Las Vegas is celebrating its return to prepandemic capacity limits with a Fourth of July fireworks celebration that will show the world that Vegas is back. This occasion marks the first time the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) has presented a firework show on the Fourth of July. The show will feature Fireworks by Grucci.

In addition to celebrating Independence Day, the destination will be celebrating the return of live entertainment as Las Vegas reopens to 100 percent capacity. On June 1, Clark County, which includes the Las Vegas metropolitan area, returned to pre-pandemic guidelines, removing all restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more.

At 11 p.m. July 4, Las Vegas will launch a themed, coordinated fireworks spectacular from the rooftops of ARIA Resort & Casino, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Resorts World Las Vegas, The STRAT Hotel, Casino & Skypod, Treasure Island Las Vegas and The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

“Las Vegas is a city built on hospitality and entertainment, and we are thrilled to welcome visitors back from around the country,” said Kate Wik, chief marketing officer for the LVCVA. “The excitement throughout the destination is palpable, and we know the pent-up demand to visit is real. We have been waiting for this moment to announce that once again, your ‘Only Vegas’ experience is waiting.”
