    The question might be "Will there be any fireworks on The Strip this year?"

    With only three weeks to go so far only the Stations casinos have said they will be doing fireworks this year... back in 2007, the last time July 4th was on a Wednesday, I think only Stratosphere and the Las Vegas Hilton did fireworks for The Strip that year.

    Caesars always does them right? I was there two years ago, and I caught them kind of last minute. Not as big of a deal as you'd think Vegas would do for the 4th.

    I was in Vegas last year on the 4th and it was a Sunday - even so, there were not that many fireworks options. As others have said, the Station casinos like Red Rock have a display, but not much elsewhere.

    Last year one or two casinos on the Strip also had a display but it was really nothing spectacular and you could only see it from certain vantage points.

    New Year's Eve is a much bigger holiday for fireworks in Las Vegas. In fact, with this July 4th being on a Wednesday with the probability of less people visiting than last year's weekend holiday crowd, I would think that there would be even fewer options for fireworks.

    I did a search online and this was pretty much all I found:
