Patriotic partying: Independence Day celebrations you won’t want to miss

With numerous fireworks displays planned across town, Fourth of July in Las Vegas is a pyro’s paradise.

Come on, let your colors burst Whether your style is Katy Perry or Lee Greenwood, the Fourth of July in Las Vegas is made for you (and your pyro friends). One of the most anticipated events of the holiday is Fourth with the Phil. Starting at 4 p.m., Symphony Park will have burgers and dogs, beer and wine (and ice cream!), live bluegrass and jazz. At 7:30, the Las Vegas Philharmonic will play a pops concert inside the Smith Center's Reynolds Hall, but even without a ticket you’ll hear it piped into the park so you don’t lose your spot for the fireworks spectacular at 9—also provided by the Phil. If tradition is your thing, hit the 65th annual Damboree in Boulder City. Kids and kids at heart can cool off in the Water Zone before hitting the booths for food and games, or watching the parade and the flyover, or listening to live music, or eating as much pie as possible—you get the idea. Either way, it will be all-American awesome.

Fourth with the Phil July 4, 4-10 p.m., $10 park access. Symphony Park, 749-2000.

Damboree July 4, 7 a.m.-10 p.m., $10 parking at Veteran's Memorial Park. Boulder City, bcnv.org.
