July 4th is less than a month away and Las Vegas is almost ready to celebrate. This is a strange year for July 4th in Las Vegas because Independence Day isn’t exactly being celebrated. Most of this year’s July 4th fireworks shows in Las Vegas aren’t even on July 4th. This year you’ll actually see more fireworks on and near the Vegas Strip from July 1 through July 3 than you will on July 4th.

Here is information on when and where you’ll be able to see fireworks in Las Vegas during July 4th weekend.

Friday, July 1

Station Casinos will be hosting fireworks on Friday, July 1 at Palace Station at 9 p.m. This will serve as the kick-off to a month-long celebration of their 40th birthday. This is a change for Station Casinos as they’ve recently held their July 4 fireworks shows at Red Rock Casino and Green Valley Ranch.

If you’re looking for a place to watch, but don’t want to leave the Vegas Strip you can head to the Stratosphere or Umami Beer Garden and SLS Las Vegas.

Saturday, July 2

311 will be performing as part of the Mandalay Bay Summer Concert Series during the fourth of July weekend. This has become an annual tradition since they’ve performed on these dates at Mandalay Bay for a few years. On Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3, guests to the show will enjoy 311 as well as a fireworks show at 8:30 p.m. Tickets to the fireworks and performance are priced between $57 – $64. Doors to the show open at 8 p.m.

Plaza will celebrate the Grand Opening of their new pool with a fireworks show from the roofs of the Plaza’s two towers at 9:30 p.m.

Sunday, July 3

Caesars Palace – They’ll be celebrating their 50th anniversary on July 3rd. The 13.5-minute fireworks show will take place at 9p.m. above the newly reimagined Julius Tower. The Linq will have a block party all day and will probably be a good place to watch the show.

Stratosphere – Their “Independence Pool Party” will be launching fireworks at 9 p.m. The fireworks display by Grucci will launch from various locations including the top of the tower. You should be able to see this from most points on the north end of the Vegas Strip. Again, Umami Beer Garden at SLS Las Vegas should make a great place to watch

Again, 311 will be performing as part of the Mandalay Bay Summer Concert Series during the fourth of July weekend. This has become an annual tradition since they’ve performed on these dates at Mandalay Bay for a few years. On Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3, guests to the show will enjoy 311 as well as a fireworks show at 8:30 p.m. Tickets to the fireworks and performance are priced between $57 – $64. Doors to the show open at 8 p.m.

If you want to get away from the chaos of the Vegas Strip, Lake Las Vegas 4th of July Celebration will take place on July 3 with a fireworks show over the lake at 9 p.m.
