Tomorrow, we celebrate the 241st anniversary our nation's independence. How will you commemorate the day? Don't have any plans yet? Here are a few places where you can watch the 2017 Reno area fireworks shows this 4th of July.
2017 Reno Area Fireworks
What's more American than watching a game of baseball on the 4th of July. The Reno Aces play the Tacoma Raniers in some minor league baseball action tomorrow night. An amazing fireworks display is scheduled above the Greater Nevada Field afterwards. Tickets cost $21 for general admission, with seniors (62+), military and kids under 12 years old receiving a $1 discount per ticket. There are only a few tickets left for the game. Visit the Reno Aces's website to purchase your tickets right now or contact the box office at (800) 440-8539.
If baseball isn't your "thing", come to downtown Reno instead. The Reno Philharmonic performs patriotic standards at Wingfield Park (300 W 1st St) for FREE. That's right. Normally, people pay up to $89 per performance to listen to these talented artists. You get to hear them for free! And don't worry about being hungry. Men Wielding Fire bring their take on BBQ right to the park for purchase. Bring your blanket and/or lawn chair. Come early to scout a good spot. Gates open at 7:30pm, with the fireworks taking place after dusk.
For another one of the 2017 Reno area fireworks shows, Victorian Square provides the best location if you happen to be in downtown Sparks on the 4th. Beginning at 4pm, the square becomes an All-American Block Party. Here, you'll find crafts and food vendors as well as live musical performances. Don't miss the patriotic bike parade. And, when the sun goes down, the Nugget shoots a fantastic fireworks display from its rooftop for guests below.
Virginia City Fireworks
Finally, Virginia City offers another one of the great 2017 Reno area fireworks shows around. Their 4th of July on the Comstock celebration starts off with a parade along Main St. After that, take a train ride, watch some old-fashioned Wild West shoot outs in the street and listen to the Comstock Cowboys perform. Auctions and raffles will be held throughout the day. But, as night falls, fireworks light up the skies in a pyrotechnical display like none other.
As a reminder, please keep your pets at home when attending any of the 2017 Reno area fireworks shows. Loud noises and large crowds scare our furry friends. Stay safe and enjoy the day. Happy Birthday, America!
