LAS VEGAS – The Plaza Hotel & Casino will again celebrate the Fourth of July with its annual fireworks show – the only one in downtown Las Vegas and the largest the property has done yet – lighting up the sky on Thursday, July 4th at 9 p.m.

Staged from the Plaza’s South Tower, the fireworks will be an amazing show for people downtown and visible for miles beyond. Hotel guests aged 21 and over will be able to view the fireworks from an exclusive viewing party on the Plaza’s rooftop pool deck. To allow for street level viewing of the firework and increased pedestrian traffic, Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic for a limited time from Carson Avenue to Ogden Avenue.

The Plaza will continue to celebrate the long holiday weekend with its popular Welcome to the Weekend Summer Friday Fireworks the next night, July 5 at 9:15 p.m. Inspired by the fireworks shows at Disneyland the Plaza lights up the sky above downtown Las Vegas every Friday night from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend.

The Plaza’s fireworks will be dependent on weather conditions and are subject to change or cancellation. Updates will be available on the Plaza’s social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Both nights, Carousel Bar and the rooftop pool will feature special summertime cocktails. The rooftop pool party for hotel guests will feature the Frozen Firecracker, a special red, white, and blue cocktail made with strawberry daiquiri, pina colada, and blue lemonade spiked with Don Q Rum. At Carousel Bar, the specialty cocktail will be the Watermelon Agua Fresca made with Mi Campo tequila, Jägermeister, rose aperitivo, watermelon juice, chamoy, and aloe leaves as a garnish.
