Independence Day around the United States is July 4th. Depending on where you live Independence Day may or may not be celebrated on that day. Las Vegas doesn’t have time to wait around to celebrate most holidays. This year the Independence Day celebrations in Las Vegas take place before July!
Independence Day celebrations in Las Vegas start as early as June 30th. Hears a look at casinos around Las Vegas where that you can find 4th of July fireworks celebrations in Las Vegas this year.
Move people who travel to Vegas start at the Vegas Strip and so will our list of casinos hosting fireworks shows. The largest fireworks show on the Vegas Strip this year will emanate from Caesars Palace on Saturday, June 30. Fireworks will be set off from the top of the Julius Tower at approximately 9:15 p.m. sharp. The fireworks show should begin at 9:15 but they were a little late last year and might be again this year. It’s better safe than sorry and arrive early if you want to catch the fireworks over Caesars Palace that last about 13 minutes.
Sidewalk space tends to fill up early to watch this free show so you should arrive early to stake out a good place to watch. You can make reservations at some bars, restaurants, and the High Roller observation wheel if you really want a good vantage point. Of course, you’ll have to pay for those. Watching from the sidewalk on the Vegas Strip is free.
After skipping a year, the Mandalay Bay is bringing back their July 4th concert and fireworks show. Unlike the Caesars Palace fireworks show, this actually takes place on July 4th. You’ll be able to see the fireworks around the south end of the Vegas Strip but the best vantage point is Mandalay Beach where the Mystic Roots concert takes place. Tickets are approximately $20 plus fees for the concert.
Downtown Las Vegas
The Plaza celebrates Independence Day on June 30th with Pool Party and fireworks show. The party at the pool starts at 7 pm and the fireworks show at the Plaza begins at 10:45 pm.
