List of Northern Nevada Fireworks Displays, Holiday Events

Posted: Updated:
There are several fireworks displays and other events planned for the Fourth of July holiday across northern Nevada.
Here's a list of some of the festivities:

From the Reno News & Review:

Organizers of “Reno Celebrates America” are inviting Veterans of all service branches, their families and friends to participate in celebrating our nation's freedom while recognizing those who served to defend it.

“We'll have some fun activities and musical entertainment, followed by a salute to Veterans and a special patriotic performance by the Reno Jazz Band and Reno Municipal Band, “ says event producer John Murphy. “We also want to recognize the people who served our nation, making it possible for us to have this celebration in the first place.”

The event will feature a “Veterans Honor Wall” - sponsored by Scheels - on which people can write Veterans' names, branch of service and dates served. The “Honor Wall” will be displayed beyond July 4th at various locations throughout the region, and at Scheels in Sparks during the Veterans Day holiday week. According to Murphy, “We have about 600 square feet of blank space which we'd love to fill with thousands of Veterans' names; I think we can make that happen.”

A tribute to Veterans is planned for 7PM, leading into the national anthem performed by local vocalist Jakki Ford, “We'd like to find some Veterans whose stories are extraordinary, which we can share with the audience on July 4th,” says Murphy. “If you know someone with a good story, we'd like to tell it on July 4th.” The tribute will be followed by patriotic performances by the Reno Jazz Band and the Reno Municipal Band, including musical tributes to each branch of the military.
Reno Celebrates America is a featured Art own event, supported by the City of Reno, produced by the Reno News & Review and sponsored by Champion Chevrolet. The event is free and open to the public and will run from PM – 9:3 at Wingfield Park, on the Trucker River in Downtown Reno. A short pyrotechnic show will happen during the finale of the Reno Municipal Band's performance.

Put on your best Independence Day duds and celebrate the Fourth of July in classic, all-American style with the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and Billy Ray Cyrus at the Red, White and Tahoe Blue concert at Village on the Green in Incline Village, Nevi., Friday, July 4 at 8:30 p.m.

Fitting for a Fourth of July celebration and in honor of the 2 anniversary of "The Star-Spangled Banner" this year, the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus performs a reprise of "Chesapeake Summer of 1814." This piece, commissioned for the Reno Philharmonic by Music Director Laura Jackson to celebrate the anniversary of "The Star-Spangled Banner," was debuted last year. The performance includes visual effects synchronized to the complete rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and other patriotic music and traditional songs that inspired our national anthem.

The orchestra joins country singer Billy Ray Cyrus for a performance of his song "Some Gave All," which earned Cyrus the Congressional Medal of Honor Society's Bob Hope Award.  This tribute to those who have given their lives in service is a welcome addition to an evening filled with emotional melodies and toe-tapping tunes, including a little Eschewing, an excerpt from Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and John Philip Souse.

Concluding the night's festivities, the Reno Philharmonic will provide accompanying orchestral music to the fireworks display over Lake Tahoe, launched from floating barges.  The Red, White and Tahoe Blue fireworks display was rated the sixth biggest in the country in 2011 according to AOL Travel, and it grows in popularity and scale each year.
VIP ticket packages are available for this patriotic public concert, which include off-site reserved parking and shuttle, admittance to a Wine & Dine event at Aspen Grove, priority entrance to the Village Green, wine tasting, refreshments, gourmet hors d’oeuvres, dessert, coffee and VIP seating for the concert and fireworks display.

From the Comstock Firemen’s Museum

A circa 1879 Lapp & Jones steam powered fire engine will be fired up as part of Friday’s Fourth of July activities in Virginia City, offering a unique opportunity to see a rare piece of fire history in operation.

The double-vertical piston driven steam fire engine will be fired up for a demonstration of its firefighting capabilities in front of the Comstock Firemen’s Museum on C Street following the Fourth of July parade that starts at noon from the Fourth Ward School, and will also appear in the parade.

The steamer is part of the collection of the Comstock Firemen’s Museum which undertook a two-and-a-half-year restoration of the engine under the supervision of Museum Trustee Jack Renal with other museum members and trustees. The Comstock Firemen’s Museum acquired the steamer on loan from a Southern California man several years ago and later purchased it for about $25,000.  Restoration of the steamer cost about $55,000 including a $45,000 grant from the E.L. Wiegand Foundation of Reno that helped cover construction and installation of a new boiler to put it into operating condition.

The steam fire engine was manufactured in Hudson, New York by the same company that supplied one of the five steam fire engines that helped protect Virginia City and Gold Hill from the ravages of fire during the mining boom days of the 1870’s.        

Approximately 5,000 steam-powered fire engines were manufactured in the United States between 1852 and 1917.  It has been estimated that fewer than 400 exist today.  The Lapp & Jones Manufacturing Company built more than 600 steamers over a 30-year period beginning in 1862.  Virginia City’s steamer bears manufacturer’s number 313, but little else of its history is known including its exact year of manufacture because the Lapp & Jones factory suffered a major fire that destroyed a large portion of its manufacturing records.  However, it is known that the steamer was once part of the Century Fox Studio’s property holdings and that it was used in the 1937 production of “In Old Chicago,” with Tyrone Power, Don Amerce and Alice Faye which featured an extensive portrayal of the 1871 Great Chicago Fire.  It was also featured in the closing scenes of the Fox movie “Hangover Square,” in 1946, starring Linda Darn ell and George Sanders, although modified to resemble an English “Metropolitan” style fire engine.

On July 4, 1979, Virginia City’s volunteer firefighters opened the doors of the museum by ringing the old fire bell and signaling a traditional “housing “of the historic fire equipment that is now displayed.  The museum, located on Virginia City’s main street, is open daily from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. May through October.  Membership in the museum is open to the public.  The Comstock Firemen’s Museum accepts donations in lieu of charging admission.
