Fourth of July in Las Vegas: What’s a better way to celebrate our freedom than in the city that showcases the best of American culture — in our humble opinion, of course.

During this time, the skyline on the Vegas Strip is dotted with trails of bursting light and sparkles that rupture in the atmosphere. And it’s not only The Strip that looks chaotic.

Fireworks streak the suburban sky, creating hazy smoke and glittering explosions that can be seen and heard across the Vegas Valley.

As true Vegas locals, we can also tell that Independence Day is among us when booths selling “safe and sane” fireworks sprout in inconspicuous parking lots across town. Illegal fireworks in Clark County include fire crackers, cherry bombs, bottle rockets and roman candles.

In fact, Clark County only allows “safe and sane” fireworks from June 28 to July 4, according to the county’s website. Fireworks are NOT allowed after midnight on July 4.

Along with this, no fireworks of any kind are allowed on federal land, which includes Red Rock, Mt. Charleston and Lake Mead.

Simply put, let’s try to avoid starting a massive fire due to your holiday celebrations.

In 2021, Las Vegas Fire and Rescue responded to 146 calls during July 4 of last year. In total, Clark County received 200 calls for fire, according to a report from KSNV.

If you plan to set off those “safe and sane” fireworks that you purchased, Clark County has a few tips that could potentially save you, and especially your property, from igniting into flames.

  • Have a pre-connected garden hose handy in case of fire.
  • Be a good neighbor when using fireworks, and be considerate of those who are sensitive to loud noises especially the elderly, veterans, children and pets.
  • Place fireworks on a flat, hard surface like a parking lot in a clear area away from buildings, vehicles and dry brush.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them into metal or glass containers.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix – save your alcohol for after the show.
  • Light one firework at a time and quickly move away. Coordinate lighting the items so that everyone in your group anticipates when they will be set off and is not surprised.
  • Place discharged fireworks into a bucket of water overnight to make certain they do not re-ignite. Make sure there are no remaining sparks, embers or heated debris that could cause something to ignite later.
  • Clean up litter left behind from fireworks.

With all of this being said, maybe it’s best to leave the fireworks up to the professionals. And this is why we compiled a list of fireworks and holiday celebrations happening on July 4!

We hope you have a safe, fun and relaxing Independence Day.
