4th of July fireworks, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Nevada
The 4th of July is on a Tuesday in 2017. There is lots of family fun to be had during the 4th of July holiday in Reno and Sparks. The big fireworks show in the Truckee Meadows is the Star Spangled Sparks extravaganza in Victorian Square, accompanied by a variety of activities before the sky lights up. This is a huge show is well worth seeing and will shoot off fireworks on two days – Saturday, July 1 and Tuesday, July 4, 2017.

Another local fireworks show will be after the 4th of July Reno Aces game at Greater Nevada Field. The game is against the Tacoma Rainiers and it starts at 6:35 p.m.

With July being Artown in Reno, there will be a free evening concert of patriotic and classical music in Wingfield Park on the 4th of July starting at 7:30 p.m. The Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus will end the performance with a choreographed fireworks show.

Up at South Lake Tahoe, “Lights on the Lake” will be particularly spectacular. The fireworks are launched from a barge out on the lake, with good vantage points all around the shoreline. Other locations around Lake Tahoe will be having fireworks shows and other activities as well, including Incline Village, Kings Beach, and Tahoe City. There will be a big party and fireworks up in Virginia City. For details about these and more, refer to “Fourth of July Fireworks in Reno, Sparks, Lake Tahoe.”

Fireworks are illegal in Washoe County – Firing off your own fireworks is illegal in Washoe County, at Lake Tahoe, and just about every other place in the surrounding region. With the hot, dry weather, this is a no brainer. Please, don’t even think about it.

The only exception to the no fireworks rule is at Pyramid Lake, where you can buy fireworks and shoot them off at designated locations within the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Reservation and according to the rules set forth by the tribe.
