Pyrotecnico, one of the country’s most creative fireworks display, pyrotechnics and special effects companies, has created a special show for the free July 4th Stars, Stripes and Sparks Independence Day celebration at the Providence Master Planned Community.
The 15-minute extravaganza will be the culmination of the event that includes kids activities, picnics and food trucks, contests, a beer and wine garden, and live music from The Garage Boys rock band.
The Stars, Stripes and Sparks fireworks will feature multi-color, pattern, color-changing and special effects shells and barrages complemented with traditional and contemporary patriotic songs. They include “Thunderstruck,” “R.O.C.K the USA,” “God Bless the USA,” “Stars and Stripes Forever,” “Armed Forces Medley,” “Born in the USA,” “Coming to America,” “Born Free,” “American Band,” and “Red, White, and Blue.” The show will be simulcast on 97.1 The Point – KXPT.
The Saturday, July 4 event begins at 6 p.m. with fireworks around 9:15 p.m., weather permitting, at Providence’s Knickerbocker Park, located at 10695 Dorrell Lane, just north of the I-215 North Beltway and Hualapai Way exit. The park’s northwest location and higher elevation also provides a panoramic view of the entire Las Vegas Valley and vantage point to watch earlier fireworks from other sites.
Picnic baskets, chairs and coolers – subject to search – are welcome. No outside alcohol, glass or fireworks, including sparklers, are permitted in the park.
Food trucks include Curbside Café, The Cookie Bar, Fat Daddy’s Ice Cream, Grouchy John’s Coffee, Hawaiian Shaved Ice, Lobster Shack, Sausagefest, Senor Blues, Slidin’ Thru and World’s Best Corndogs.
The dedicated kids area has water slides, hula hoops and water blasters tents for ages 7 and younger and ages 8 and older. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own water blasters or super soakers. Contests for all ages include “Who Can Do It Better” and “What’s Your Hidden Talent.” Park amenities include play areas for 2 to 5-year-olds and 5 to 12-year-olds, swing set and splash pad.
