Rockets Over the River Display

The Laughlin Tourism Commission is sponsoring a spectacular New Year’s Eve display at midnight Nevada time with pyrotechnics by Zambelli Fireworks.
The New Year’s Eve show will be about 22 minutes and includes 3,500 total shots with 835 of those just for the grand finale! This display will be choreographed to patriotic music on 104.9 KISS FM, as we say goodbye to 2020.
The display is shot off from the Arizona side of the Colorado River, across from the Pioneer.
“The fallout zone is 2,000 feet outside of the detonation site, which is the Laughlin property across the street from the old post office on Highway 95, just south of Home Depot,” LTC President Jackie Mazzeo said.
“So that whole section right there is the fallout zone for the rockets and its aftermath, but anywhere else where it’s not fenced you can view. We don’t want people four-wheeling onto airport land or private land but there are plenty of parking lots and public places where people can pull off.
“The Riverwalk will be closed to the public. Laughlin hotel guests can watch from their hotel room. If you are a local you can park anywhere and stay in your car and watch it from your car.”e
