The Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa is one of the most popular gambling establishments located off the Las Vegas Strip. On July 4th, this casino was forced to cancel a massive fireworks display. Fortunately, the show is back on and kicks off at 9 pm tonight!
That’s right. Locals and tourists in Las Vegas can still check out the Red Rock fireworks display. Let’s take a look at why this hotel-casino canceled the show in the first place, and what time it will kick off tonight.
Red Rock Casino Cancels Fireworks Display
Last month, Red Rock Casino announced it was putting on a fireworks show on the 4th of July. That day, news came out that Red Rock’s fireworks vendor failed to file the proper paperwork with the Clark County Fire Department and was forced to cancel the display.
Red Rock gave an official statement to the public:
“Out of an abundance of caution and concern for our guests, we have made a decision to cancel this evening’s firework show. Our vendor did not file the appropriate paperwork with the Clark County Fire Department. Even though all of our safety protocols are in place, the safety of our guests and our community must come first. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and disappointment.”
Las Vegas Fireworks Display Kicks off Tonight
Luckily for those in Las Vegas, the Red Rock Casino has rescheduled this fireworks show. The casino states that the vendor took responsibility for the paperwork misunderstanding.
This vendor released a statement, explaining that canceling the show was the only possible option.
“The cancellation by Station Casinos was the right decision in our view because it had to do with obtaining safety certifications from local Fire authorities. The late notice for the cancellation is our responsibility and we apologize to Station Casinos, their guests and the entire Southern Nevada community.”
The show must go on! Red Rock Casino announced today that the fireworks show is back on. They’ve reached an agreement with the fire department and this event will now begin at 9 pm. If you’re in the Vegas area, stop by and check it out!
Station Casinos’ Recent Energy Dispute
The Red Rock is having a busy year. It’s operated by Station Casinos, one of the biggest locals casino companies in Nevada. A few months ago, Station Casinos announced that it was leaving NV Energy in favor of a smaller energy supplier.
Interestingly, a number of other casino companies claim they are leaving NV Energy, as well.
Eventually, Station Casinos decided to stick with NV Energy. In June, this major casino operator announced it had reached an agreement with the Las Vegas-based energy supplier.
