The Fourth of July is just days away, and Las Vegas is the place to be for making plans to attend a party. Several resorts are offering guests a chance to take part in the festivities Las Vegas has to offer. Here, we take a look at 10 parties happening in Las Vegas for Independence Day. 10. Flamingo Las Vegas Bird Bar at Flamingo Las Vegas is having an all-you-can-drink package on the 4th. The Strip-side bar will have a fireworks viewing party along with a $50 open bar special running from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The deal is available on the patio and includes domestic and imported beer, well cocktails and house margaritas. Beer pong is also available, and guests can enjoy taking part in karaoke as well. 9.

At the free-to-attend party, guests can swim or relax poolside while a DJ plays crowd favorites. Festivities start with downtown Las Vegas’ only hot dog eating contest in the style of the famous event held annually at Coney Island. The contest winner will receive a grand prize, which includes $200, a free two-night stay at the Plaza, $150 to Oscar’s Steakhouse, a free pool cabana, plus $50 towards food and beverage at the Pool at the Plaza. The party culminates with live fireworks at 9 p.m. 8.

Caesars Palace The Las Vegas Strip fireworks has been mentioned a few times, but Caesars Palace is where they happen. Many people go to different spots along the Strip to get a glance at the memorable fireworks. Caesars is the home of the fireworks, which are planned to commence at 9:15 p.m. on 4 July. They will last roughly 13 minutes and will take off from the Julius Tower of the resort. The Gazillionaire is celebrating 4,500 performances of ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace with the fireworks display. “4,500 shows? Time sure does drag when you have to deal with the idiots I employ,” shared The Gazillionaire while announcing the upcoming spectacle during the finale of last night’s late show. “I’ve really painted myself into a corner here since fans of the show have come to expect a party for every little occasion. Anniversary? Party. It’s Saturday? Party. 4,500 shows? Blow some sh*t up…and then party.” One of the better views of the fireworks can be found at the front fountains of Caesars. Also being offered at the resort are drink specials, games, DJs and more during the day at Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis.
