Get a jump on celebrating America’s Independence Day a day early amid the unique lakeside setting of Lake Las Vegas. Two simultaneous fireworks shows, the Henderson Symphony Orchestra at dusk, musical acts during the day, and water activities for the whole family will be held at the master planned residential and resort community surrounding a 320-acre lake on Sunday, July 3.
The free event begins at 2 p.m. and culminates with fireworks at 8:40 p.m. Times are subject to change.
The Henderson Symphony will perform at 7 p.m. on a floating stage adjacent to the Lake Las Vegas Marina in MonteLago Village. The orchestra will play classic favorites and patriotic songs to accompany the fireworks.
Fireworks can be seen from the MonteLago Village and the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa.
Pyrotecnico, one of the country’s leading creative fireworks display, pyrotechnics and special effects companies, returns to design the shows in conjunction with the music.
“We love creating firework shows at the one-of-a-kind waterside venues Lake Las Vegas offers where we can take advantage of the bursts’ reflections off the lake and paint the sky as our canvas,” said Phillip Stewart of Pyrotecnico. “Both shows will incorporate traditional firework favorites, such as peonies and chrysanthemums, and also some new creations, specifically for this event.”
The public is invited to come early and enjoy live music in MonteLago Village and a variety of watercraft and water sport rentals and lessons including electric Duffy boats, Flyboard, gondolas, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. Dining options can be found in the MonteLago Village, Seasons Market, Reflection Bay Clubhouse, Hilton Lake Las Vegas and Westin Las Lake Vegas.
“With our beaches, activities, floating park and stage, and, of course, beautiful lake, Lake Las Vegas is the perfect place for family and friends to celebrate Independence Day,” said Cody Winterton of Lake Las Vegas. “We look forward to seeing those who have joined us before and welcoming new attendees to this fun and patriotic event celebrating the country’s birthday.”
The July 3 Independence Day event is part of Lake Las Vegas’ “Summer of Celebration” which also includes the opening of the new Seasons Market in MonteLago Village in June, the grand openings of several new home communities, a new private fitness club and more.
