Las Vegas Events (LVE) and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) announced today that the New Year’s Eve celebration known as America’s Party: Las Vegas New Year 2011 will include a spectacular fireworks show fired from seven rooftop locations along the Las Vegas Strip.
The firing locations (from the south, heading north) include the following resort properties: MGM Grand, Aria, Planet Hollywood, Caesars Palace, Treasure Island (TI), The Venetian and the Stratosphere.
Fireworks by Grucci of New York will coordinate the pyrotechnic display for the seventh time. The group has executed numerous presidential inaugurations and citywide celebrations. Locally, Fireworks by Grucci has produced many of Las Vegas’ largest special events and grand openings, including the official Las Vegas Centennial celebration.
“The America’s Party Fireworks display belongs on the rooftops,” said LVE President Pat Christenson. “We have worked consistently with Fireworks by Grucci, the Clark County Fire Department and Building Services and the individual resort properties to ensure that the show is executed safely. With hundreds of thousands of revelers expected on the Strip, we’re confident that Fireworks by Grucci will design a show that is befitting of this city.”
According to the LVCVA, Las Vegas hosted an estimated 315,000 visitors during the 2009 New Year’s Eve celebration.
“New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas is unlike any other celebration in the world,” said Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO of the LVCVA. “Our visitors participate in a one-of-a-kind evening of celebrity-hosted nightclub count-downs, special dining experiences at restaurants, and live music at Fremont Street Experience downtown all culminating in our world-renowned fireworks display at midnight. There is no other destination that offers this excitement on New Year’s Eve.”
Thematic elements and the musical portion of the fireworks show will be announced at a later date.
