Once again Eureka Casino Resort is excited to host Rockets Over the Red Mesa, a night of fireworks, sounds from The Nevada POPS, and community celebration.

For the third consecutive year, Eureka Casino Resort is proud to host “Rockets over the Red Mesa” on Wednesday, July 4th. Due to the overwhelming response from 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. The fireworks and concert are free shows and a gift from the Eureka celebrating patriotism and our local community.

This year the celebration will include a Community Vendor Village and 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 Vendor Village.

"Lemonade, and crackerjacks all go great with a fireworks show; 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" said Andre Carrier - COO of Eureka. The Community Vendor Village will be located behind the main casino and will run from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

"After last year’s show we received many wonderful comments and

letters about the show. Seeing so many come out and enjoy the show was a great gift to us and we are happy to be able bring the Nevada POPS again this year." said Eureka’s co-founder and owner, Doris Lee. For this special July 4th performance, the Nevada POPS will feature a 31 piece orchestra performing a 75 minute program.

"4th of July fireworks are a great American tradition, and Mesquite is a great American town. It is only fitting that Mesquite is home to a great 4th of July celebration." said Greg Lee owner of Eureka Casino Resort.

“Rockets over the Red Mesa”, produced by Las Vegas Display Firework Inc., is always a great show and this year will be no exception and this year, they have a few new tricks to show off. Arrive early and enjoy the Jack Daniels Backyard BBQ and Budweiser Beer Garden in The Experience Buffet. The BBQ buffet will run from 3:30pm to 8:00pm and will feature a build your own burger station, Eureka’s famous BBQ Spare Ribs and much more. The price is $10.99 with a Gold Club Card ($12.99 without).
