Las Vegas Fireworks on New Year's Eve


Good news, Classic Las Vegas revelers!

If you are planning on ringing in the New Year in the bright light city, there are six hotels that will be offering fireworks displays:

Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars, Planet Hollywood, Aria and the MGM Grand are all participating in the 8 minute, 12 song display by Grucci, who also does the annual July 4th displays.

The songs featured will be:

Auld Lang Syne will be the first song, followed by Flo Rida's Whistle,  Pink's Raise Your Glass, Avicii's Le7els, Duncan's Light up the Sky, and Wanted's Glad You Came.

The finale will be Titanium, by David Guetta.

The Fremont Street Experience will have digital fireworks as part of their canopy display. Mayor Carolyn Goodman advises, "Please don't drink and drive."

"This is the biggest fireworks show in the country," said Phil Grucci.

"No city has a bigger show than this one. Only New York City on the Fourth of July might have something larger; but as far as pyrotechnics goes, we're it. And I'm always happy to be a part of it."

With New Year's Eve kicking off a long-holiday weekend this year, it was announced that firework displays will return to famed Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas Events and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority  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, Planet Hollywood, Aria, Caesars Palace, Treasure Island (TI), Venetian and the Stratosphere. 

Fireworks by Grucci of New York will again coordinate the pyrotechnic display.   Locally, Fireworks by Grucci has produced many of Las Vegas’ largest special events and grand openings, including the official Las Vegas Centennial celebration.

 In addition to designing the pyrotechnic display, Fireworks by Grucci will, once again, work directly with the Clark County Fire Department and Building Services to ensure both fire and structural safety guidelines.

The Fremont Street Experience will have live music with 13 Tribute bands performing under the canopy on Fremont Street.  Music from Green Day, Led Zeppelin, Heart and others will play well into the new year and keep an eye out, Mayor Goodman says he will be there, as he has for the last 12 years, intermingling with the crowds.
