Las Vegas is pleased of its fireworks.

Even when wind and snow threatened to put a halt to our annual New Year’s Eve show on the Strip, prep works went on and thousands ended up for the freezing phenomenon.

The 4th of July will definitely be a much warmer affair. Right here are 7 spots to enjoy the fireworks in Las Vegas and the surrounding communities.
