Spend a fabulous Fourth in Las Vegas

It's time to celebrate your independence, and what better way than with a fabulous Fourth of July weekend in Las Vegas!

Fourth Fireworks

It wouldn't be the Fourth without fireworks, and Las Vegas has plenty of places to enjoy them. Caesars Palace will be launching fireworks at 9 p.m. for the entire center Strip to see. The Linq will also have a fireworks display just behind the High Roller at 9:30 p.m. You can also see the skies light up at Green Valley Ranch, Red Rock Resort and the Stratosphere. BOOM!

But that's just the beginning. Get up close and personal with the world's top mixed martial arts stars from July 1-6 during UFC International Fight Week! It's an entire week filled with meet and greets, autograph signings, pool parties, concerts and more, capped off by UFC 175 at Mandalay Bay.

Queen with Adam Lambert

There are plenty of explosive entertainment options, too, including Queen & Adam Lambert at the Joint inside the Hard Rock HotelSublime with Rome at Mandalay Bay, and fittingly, the band America at the Cannery.

Pool parties will be in full swing all weekend long, too, including performances by the world's top DJ's and artists, including Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Zedd and Steve Angello at Encore Beach Club, Afrojack and Calvin Harris at Wet Republic at MGM Grand, DJ Ikon at Rehab at the Hard Rock and DJ Pauly D's birthday set at ARIA's Liquid.

Haze

The club scene is the perfect place to enjoy your freedom, too, especially with spinmasters including Tiesto and Dada Life at MGM Grand's Hakkasan, Dillon Francis and Morgan Page at Surrender inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas and special guest appearances like UFC Octagon Girls Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer at Haze inside ARIA.

If you're feeling patriotic, enjoy a meal at America inside New York-New York or the All-American Bar and Grill at the Rio All-Suite Hotel. Or show your true colors with a relaxing treatment at The Spa at Red Rock, followed by a trip to check out the White Lions and Royal White Tigers at Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage, and then cap the night with a performance of the Blue Man Group at the Monte Carlo.

For more traditional Independence Day revelry, take a quick ride to Boulder City for the July 4th Damboree! You can enjoy everything from a pancake breakfast to a parade and midway booths, and of course, an evening fireworks show.

You'll have a fabulous Fourth no matter where you celebrate in Las Vegas! 

Vegas Weekend: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a Vegas fiesta!

You'll find a fiesta everywhere you turn in Las Vegas, all Cinco de Mayo weekend long! Here's who you'll find partying it up and where. Check out our listings below or see the full weekend lineup of shows here.
