The sale and use of fireworks is prohibited in Las Vegas without a permit, no matter how big or small your display. This is mainly due to the ongoing drought conditions. But this doesn’t prevent Valley residents from having fun. A short trip to Pahrump will give you access to all of the fireworks your heart desires, while many other companies in and around town will provide inflatable slides, bouncy houses, water play options, tables, chairs, tents and equipment rentals to make your Fourth of July a real splash.
Whether you want to buy them by the case or the unit, Red Apple has nearly every available type of firework on the market. Just a short drive from Las Vegas, the friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you pick out the perfect pyrotechnics for any occasion: from sparklers and poppers for the kids to awesome volcanoes, rockets, shells and fountains for that “wow” moment for the entire family. The shop even has aerial displays like mortars, Roman candles and rockets so you can rival the professionals. Staff will provide you with tips on safety and presentation as well as help you in getting the best bang for your buck, and may even suggest area locations where you can set off your display. Don’t risk entering Las Vegas city limits with fireworks, so if you can find a location out of town, whether camping, staying with friends or renting a cabin; be prepared to be amazed by the quality and variety at Red Apple.
