Las Vegas Does New Year’s Eve Fireworks To Ring in 2022

The Strip is set for a show in the sky worthy of being called 'America’s Party 2022'

Katy Perry says it best – “Baby, you’re a firework.” Actually, she sings it, but that’s not the point. For the purposes of this article, we are going to assume she is singing about her soon to be home away from home, Las Vegas.

Residents and visitors to Las Vegas are more than ready to tell 2021 where to stick it and welcome a new year. Particularly since the most major NYE celebrations (except the Plaza’s downtown show) were canceled last year due to the pandemic. 

PARTY, PARTY, PARTY!

“AMERICA’S PARTY 2022”

The biggest collection of pyrotechnics will no doubt be seen on the strip. Being that we are ringing in the year 2022, the theme this year is “Deuces Wild.” Las Vegas Events and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority have hired Fireworks by Grucci to light up the skies above the Strip. In total, eight resorts will be shooting off fireworks from their roofs at midnight. The fireworks are only one part of what is being billed as “America’s Party 2022.” Concerts and shows are also play a major role in the festivities.

Participating resorts include:

MGM Grand Hotel & Casino

ARIA Resort & Casino

Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Caesars Palace Las Vegas

Treasure Island – TI Hotel & Casino

The Venetian Resort Las Vegas

Resorts World Las Vegas

The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod

For those of you who want to time their “oohs” and “aahs” with the firework show’s soundtrack, you can tune into local radio stations KOMP 92.3 and 97.1 The Point. Songs include:

“Auld Lang Syne,” “Deuces Are Wild” by Aerosmith and “22” by Taylor Swift.

This year will feature over 11,500 pastel colored and special shaped pyrotechnics that are controlled by more than 130 people total.

downtown displays

A short jaunt north and visitors and residents will find other options for fireworks downtown. The Plaza will stage multiple locations on their rooftops and towers for a spectacular New Years Eve fireworks display. The plaza will blast off their shiny show in the sky at midnight. A note of caution here: The Main Street area in front of the Plaza will be closed while the fireworks are being popped off. 

There is also a rooftop viewing party available for purchase if you want to see them up close and personal. Read more information on how to plan viewing the Plaza’s fireworks display.

covid considerations

As of the posting of this article, despite other major cities modifying their annual celebrations, The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority has said there are no plans to change the fireworks extravaganza on the Strip.

The latest COVID-19 variant, omicron, has spread rapidly nationwide in recent weeks with a 14 day average of 703 new cases by Nevada Health Response on December 27th alone.

New York has scaled back their annual Ball drop this year. And LA has cancelled their New Year’s Eve event all together. 

For those wanting to do as Katy Perry says an “ ignite the light, and let it shine,” this NYE, Las Vegas is the place to do just that. ‘Cause here in Vegas, “ you’re a firework,” it’s time for our city to show you what your worth!
