The Stratosphere will be one of the casinos to light up the Las Vegas Strip this Independence Day with a fireworks display to celebrate America’s birthday. Plus, they will offer perks for locals, available exclusively this Wednesday.
The fireworks display will begin at 9:15 p.m. and a viewing party will be held at Elation Rooftop Pool offering guests an up-close experience with doors opening at 8 p.m. Earlier in the day, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., locals with Nevada ID will receive free observation tower admission, a $25 per person value, and buy-one-get-one free admission to Crafted Buffet.
These two Station Casino properties will host their Battle of the Alamo block party, a Fourth of July tradition in Las Vegas from the late 90’s where the neighboring casinos team up to give the community a stunning fireworks display. This year the fireworks will be complemented by family-friendly festivals at both properties’ outdoor parking lots from 4 to 11 p.m. at the corner of Rancho Drive and Lake Mead Blvd.
The fireworks show will begin at approximately 9 p.m., continuing a tradition of Station Casinos hosting the largest July Fourth fireworks shows in Southern Nevada. The July 4th Fireworks Blast will be a nine-minute spectacular show in the sky to honor the nation’s 242nd birthday. There will also be free fireworks shows at Green Valley Ranch Resort and Red Rock Resort.
At the Texas Station-Fiesta Rancho block party, guests will have their pick of food, shopping and family-fun entertainment at both properties. Outside Fiesta Rancho, guests will be treated to live entertainment with the Latin Vida Reunion Band and DJ Leo, with live salsa demonstrations by Salsa Las Vegas Dancers. There will also be live wrestling from Lucha Libre Las Vegas and a wide assortment of food vendors, including Pancho’s Vegan Tacos, Gorditas El Fogon, Culichi Town, Mr. Papas & Raspados, La Flor de Michoacán, and barbecue from Smokin’ Sam’s.
On Texas Station’s lot, food vendors include Ms. B’s Snowballs & Snacks, Blazing Food Chariot, Getting Baked, Monti’s Smokehouse BBQ, The Corndog Company, Gorditas El Fogon, Grand Slam Custard, Snowie Paradice, La Flor de Michoacán and Greek Delights LV.
There will be block party swag for sale, and Kids Quest will be in attendance, as well as Dorothy’s Toys, Elissa’s Animal Rides, Altitude Adjustment, P Nay Pride by Lisa Marie, Smile Care Professionals, Viking Tinkers, Chloe’s Fairy Cottage and Doodlebug Boutique.
Live entertainment at Texas includes Emcee DJ Caffeine, a trick roper, mechanical bull, performances by the Tony Marques Band and line dance lessons. At both properties, guests can also enjoy a Kids Fun Zone with bounce houses, a super slide, electronic animal rides, face painters and balloon artists.
Eureka Casino Resort in Mesquite, Nev., will continue its tradition of Rockets Over the Red Mesa on Wednesday. The Nevada Pops Orchestra will return for the eighth year with the full 32-piece orchestra accompanied by singer Clint Holmes, performing songs saluting American heroes.
This free event will begin at 6 p.m. with a community vendor village and DJ. The celebration continues with a 75-minute live performance from the Pops at 8 p.m., followed by fireworks at 9.
The orchestra will accompany the fireworks show to celebrate Independence Day in true American style. This is a family-friendly event and everyone is invited to attend.
