One of the largest Fourth of July fireworks displays in Las Vegas will be put on by Station Casinos.

The nine minute show will feature fireworks shot off from the tops of five properties, including Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch Resort, and Red Rock Resort. Texas Station and Fiesta Rancho will be a shared location.

Grucci Fireworks created and will shoot off the display. They are the same group responsible for the New Year's fireworks on the Strip. Planning for the show started eight months ago. It is timed to synchronize with music that will play on the following local radio stations: KKLZ 96.3 FM, KOAS 105.7 FM, KCYE 102.7 FM The Coyote, BOB FM 107.9 FM and KDWN AM720.

“If they have the song “Money,” you will see dollar signs. You will see everything that makes people go: ‘ooh and ahh’," Larry Goetz with Grucci Fireworks said.

The show is slated to start sometime after 9 p.m. Wednesday. 

Man Pleads Guilty to DUI in Trick-or-Treater Death

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A 41-year-old man has pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge in the death of a 12-year-old trick-or-treater in Las Vegas.

Justin Caramanica pleaded Monday to felony driving under the influence involving death. Court officials say a reckless driving charge against him was dropped.

The crash about 8:30 p.m. Halloween night killed 12-year-old Faith Love as she was crossing a street outside a crosswalk near West Sahara Avenue and South Hualapai Way. Love had dressed up as a Native American princess for a night of trick-or-treating with relatives.

Police say Caramanica's blood-alcohol percentage was just under the .08 percent blood-alcohol limit for driving in Nevada, but Caramanica might also have taken prescription drugs.

YMCA Offers Free Summer Meals

YMCA Offers Free Summer Meals

The YMCA of Southern Nevada is helping fill the gap left by the schools being closed for the summer. The Y is offering free meals and snacks for kids under 18 through the Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.

The YMCA has partnered with the Walmart Foundation. The foundation gave the program a $22,500 grant to address childhood hunger in southern Nevada. That money is being used to make sure more kids have access to the summer food program. Around the country, an estimated 21 million children lose access to free or reduced-cost meals during the summer.

There will be free lunches available at these YMCA locations Monday through Friday:

  • Heinrich YMCA, 4141 Meadows Lane
  • Serving 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Durango Hills YMCA, 3521 N. Durango Dr.
  • Serving 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • SkyView YMCA, 3050 E. Centennial Parkway
  • Serving Noon to 2 p.m.

Indoor Soccer Team Coming to Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS - The Professional Arena Soccer League is hoping to strike gold in Las Vegas. The indoor soccer league announced Tuesday Las Vegas will be home to its newest franchise – the Las Vegas Legends.

The PASL isn't the first league to try and bring professional soccer to Las Vegas. Indoor and outdoor franchises in Las Vegas have come and gone over the years. Now, it's the Las Vegas Legends' turn.

"The community is hungry for this," said Las Vegas Legends President Meir Cohen. "There are a lot of soccer fanatics in this town, and they deserve to have a team."

The $50,000 fee paid to the PASL ensures the Legends will be the 15th franchise for at least this season.

"If they match what the hockey team is doing here, they'll be doing very well," said PASL Commissioner Kevin Milliken. "The hockey team, from what (Orleans Arena Executive Director Darren Davis) told me… four to five thousand a game."

Bowl 4 The Kids Coming In September!

The connection between bowling and providing medical care for children with little or no health insurance may not seem like an obvious one, but so far it's working just fine.

That’s according to Annette Logan, Executive Director of the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, which had its first Bowl-a-Thon in 2011 and is planning its second event September 22 at the Suncoast Bowling Center.

“We were amazed at how many people signed up to help us last year, and how much money we raised,” Logan said.  “It’s so gratifying to see the community support us because we are the only non-profit facility in the state providing this kind of care."
