In celebration of Independence Day, the mid-week July 4 holiday will be celebrated all over town with fireworks and parties galore and kicks us off to a great month of casino promotions.
As the sun sets, Station Casinos will again host the largest Fourth of July fireworks show in Southern Nevada this Wednesday shortly after 9 p.m. The fireworks show will be a nine-minute presentation produced by Grucci of New York. The citywide fireworks shows will go off at Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Fiesta Rancho, Texas Station and Red Rock Casino Resort. Arrive early for parking.
At 9:30 p.m., Wednesday the casino will display a brilliant fireworks show that will paint the night sky with vivid colors. The prime viewing location will be situated behind Buffalo Bill’s Resort & Casino within the Star of the Desert Arena parking lot.
The Colorado Belle Casino Resort opened its doors Fourth of July weekend in 1987. The property will celebrate the 25th anniversary with a spectacular fireworks display at 9:30 p.m. Complimentary cake and champagne will be served from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. inside the casino. The best view of the fireworks will be from the property’s river walk. The public is invited to join in for the free refreshments and fireworks.
There is an impressive free fireworks display from the rooftop of the Roman Tower on Saturday, July 7. The celebratory show will kick off at 9:15 p.m. (weather permitting), granting hotel guests and passersby the best views on the Las Vegas Strip from the front fountains.
This Friday inside Miracle Mile Shops the PBR Rock Bar will hold its official grand opening party for the Las Vegas Strip’s new party spot. Bar revelers can party on the bar’s elevated dance platforms while they rock out to the DJ spinning top 40, rock and pop selections. Partygoers can enjoy a $25 open bar with domestic drafts and Ketel One cocktails from 9 p.m. until close.
The downtown casino is hosting pool parties this summer. Starting Saturday, July 21, there will be a Rockabilly Pool Party from 6 p.m. to midnight. It’s a retro-inspired night of poolside fun with drink specials at the bar, dancing to the DJs and rockin’ to the live rockabilly bands. The Rockabilly Pool parties are going down July 21, Aug. 18 and Sept. 15. Admission is free.
July begins with a “$300,000 Summer Spectacular.” On Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, players can earn 200 same-day base points between 3 a.m. and 11 p.m. Players can swipe and spin the wheel on the kiosk to win a random prize, including possible bonus points, 2x bonus point multipliers, $20-$50 in free slot play, buffets or a SP logo t-shirt. No points are deducted from the players account. On Mondays and Wednesdays, from 1 to 9 p.m., $1,000 cash will be awarded to a random winner every 30 minutes.
Have a safe and happy Fourth.
Until next week…good gaming and good luck!
