Updated July 5, 2021 - 12:28 am

The Las Vegas Strip was ablaze with fireworks late Sunday night as Nevadans and tourists celebrated the Fourth of July.

Coordinated displays were launched from several hotel-casino properties as hundreds of thousands of visitors and locals watched.

The weekend was the first major holiday since Nevada returned to normal activities after more than a year of pandemic measures forced the closure of all resorts for several months. A few remain closed.

More than a dozen fireworks shows and events were held around the valley on Sunday night.
