Two Strip resorts will be lighting the sky with fireworks displays on the Fourth of July.

Both Mandalay Bay and Caesars Palace will be hosting fireworks on Sunday. Both displays will start about 9 p.m.

Caesars Palace suggested the Roman Plaza will be the best place to watch fireworks at the resort. The fireworks will be free and open to the public.

Mandalay Bay will be hosting a concert with reggae band Mystic Roots with the fireworks display Sunday night at Mandalay Bay Beach. The event has a $25 cover charge.

Off the Strip, the Las Vegas Hilton also will be hosting a fireworks event at about 9:20 p.m. Sunday.

The resort will be hosting an invitation-only viewing party at its pool, but a Hilton spokeswoman said the best place for the public to watch the fireworks will be near the sports book entrance.

At the Fremont Street Experience, the Viva Vision light canopy will feature virtual fireworks through the weekend.

Station Casinos will be hosting fireworks at five of its properties around the Las Vegas Valley. The locations include Green Valley Ranch, Aliante Station, Red Rock Resort, Fiesta Rancho and Texas Station. The nine-minute fireworks display will begin at 8:45 p.m.
