The Plaza Hotel and Casino is ready to launch its annual fireworks display in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Fireworks have been set up by Pyrotek Fireworks on the Plaza’s rooftop North Tower and some are also staged on the pool deck.
There will be a viewing area for hotel guests to watch the fireworks at the main hotel pool.
People from all over are in Vegas to celebrate the 4th of July weekend.
“I’m from Oregon and I’m traveling with my best friend,” said Oregon resident Susan Woolliscroft.
“It’s her birthday and the holiday weekend was also very appealing,” Sacramento resident Jacquie Romero said.
People like Susan Woolliscroft are most excited about the fireworks.
“We’ll hang out by the pool and then we have a great view from our room, so we’ll watch the fireworks there if it’s too crowded,” Woolliscroft said.
“The guys from Pyrotek fireworks are here all weekend settling in,” said Lisa Melmed, marketing manager for the Plaza Hotel and Casino. “They start in the ballroom and then move everything to the roof and do their thing and it’s an amazing show.”
For years, the Plaza Hotel and Casino has been launching fireworks from its rooftops and towers.
The 7-minute show will light up the skies of the valley and downtown.
“Even throughout the pandemic and also July 2 is our anniversary, so last year we celebrated our 50th anniversary and that’s just something we have to do,” Melmed said.
People said that while they were mainly looking forward to celebrating and watching tonight’s fireworks, they also had a special connection with today’s holiday.
“My grandfather was a pilot in the navy,” Woolliscroft said. “So for the 4th of July, for him, it was always about celebrating our country, our friends and our family and just being together.”
“It’s a day of remembrance,” said a Sacramento resident who did not want to be identified. “America is a great country.”
“It will be great again,” Romero said.
The Plaza fireworks are scheduled to start at 9 p.m.
Hotel reps said you’ll be able to see this show from anywhere on Fremont Street, but the best view is on Main Street, which will be blocked off for people to watch.
