The sky will light up over Westgate Entertainment District this Fourth of July for the third annual Westgate Firework Fest presented by Desert Diamond Casinos and Entertainment West Valley on Saturday, July 4 from 5pm – 9:30pm during the West Valley’s largest fireworks show and festival.
Last year, more than 40,000 people turned out and this year promises to be even more patriotic. The free, family-friendly event also has ample, convenient and free parking that will be available at all parking lots surrounding Westgate Entertainment District.
Arrive before all the festivities kick off at 5pm to take advantage of all-day dining and shopping deals at participating tenants and have the kids play and cool off at Fountain Park’s Splash Pad, near AMC Theatres. From 5pm until 9pm, live bands and DJs will perform on two stages. The family stage, located at Fountain Park, will have a DJ, dancing, activities for kids and giveaways. The second stage will be located at WaterDance Plaza, in front of Gila River Arena, with a variety of Rock, Alternative, Pop and Country performances by local bands.
For the 21-and-over crowd, a beer garden will be setup near WaterDance Plaza with a broad selection of beer choices. A portion of the proceeds from the beer garden will benefit 100 Club of Arizona.
Bring blankets or lawn chairs and picnic in the park and the plaza with “Grab & Go” dining deals from participating Westgate restaurants before and during the 15-minute fireworks show at 9pm.
