For the third consecutive year, Eureka Casino Resort will be hosting “Rockets over the Red Mesa” on Wednesday, July 4. And due to the overwhelming response to last year’s performance the Nevada POPS Orchestra will be back again this year. The live performance will begin at 8:00 pm followed by fireworks at 9:00 pm.
The orchestra will accompany the fireworks show.
Eureka officials said that the fireworks and concert will be a free show, a gift from the Eureka, celebrating patriotism and the local communities.
This year the celebration will include a Community Vendor Village and a special Hot Dog Eating Contest. Eureka has invited local charities and volunteer organizations to use the attraction of this special event to educate and raise money for their organizations as part of the Community VendorVillage.
“Lemonade, and crackerjacks all go great with a fireworks show,” said Andre Carrier – COO of Eureka. “The idea is to give local charities the opportunity to sell those and many other items at the show to raise both money and awareness for their causes.”
The Community Vendor Village will be located behind the main casino and will run from 6:00-8:00 pm.
“After last year’s show we received many wonderful comments and letters,” said Eureka’s co-founder and owner, Doris Lee. “Seeing so many come out and enjoy the show was a great gift to us and we are happy to be able to bring the Nevada POPS again this year.”
For this special July 4th performance, the Nevada POPS will feature a 31 piece orchestra performing a 75 minute program.
“Fourth of July fireworks are a great American tradition, and Mesquite is a great American town,” said Greg Lee owner of Eureka Casino Resort. “It is only fitting that Mesquite is home to a great 4th of July celebration.”
“Rockets over the Red Mesa”, produced by Las Vegas Display Firework Inc., is always a great show and this year they have a few new tricks to show off.
Guests are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy the Jack Daniels Backyard BBQ and Budweiser Beer Garden in The Experience Buffet. The BBQ buffet will run from 3:30-8:00pm and will feature a build your own burger station, Eureka’s famous BBQ Spare Ribs and much more.
The fireworks show and POPS performance is free to attend. The viewing area will be set up behind the Eureka Casino. Guests should bring their own chairs. Everyone is invited.
