Vegas Preps For "The Big Bang"

LAS VEGAS, NV - The eyes of the world will be riveted on the Las Vegas Strip December 31 as the city delivers the biggest, most spectacular New Year's Eve fireworks show in the history of the famed boulevard.

At midnight, more than 13,000 shells will race to the heavens and explode in a choreographed feat of pyrotechnic mastery along an approximate four-mile stretch from Mandalay Bay to the Stratosphere Tower. A grand procession of glittering comets, tiger tails, bombette candles and specially designed, Las Vegas-themed fireworks will illuminate the sky during the 10-minute performance. A simultaneous exhibition will burst and sparkle above the heads of revelers downtown under the canopy of the Fremont Street Experience.

"We have planned an awe-inspiring display that will capture the spirit of a Las Vegas-style celebration," said Rossi Ralenkotter, vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). "A presentation of this magnitude is an unforgettable way to welcome the New Year for the city's residents and the estimated 263,000 visitors who will celebrate with us that night."

Zambelli Fireworks Internationale, which has a 100-year history spanning three generations of manufacturing and exhibiting fireworks shows worldwide, is producing the Las Vegas New Year's Eve extravaganza. The company has produced the world's largest pyro-musical productions, including the City of Chicago's Sesquicentennial; last year's massive, multi-borough, choreographed display in New York; and a New Year's Day show in Pittsburgh executed from four of the city's tallest skyscrapers, the Smithfield bridge and six barges.

Fireworks will be launched from 13 sites along Las Vegas Boulevard during the 10-minute extravaganza. "The Big Bang," as it's being billed, is presented by the LVCVA and LVE.
