What happens if weather prevents tonight's fireworks in Sparks?
The Nugget's Star Spangled Sparks fireworks show is still happening tonight in downtown Sparks, assuming weather and wind conditions permit.
The hotel has 1,700 firecrackers on deck to light up the sky tonight, but -- if winds exceed 15 miles per hour -- the show will be delayed until the winds die down.
However, if winds pick up and continue through midnight, the show could be postponed until tomorrow, July 5.
There’s even a possibility the fireworks show could happen during the day.
“Typically, what would happen then is it would go to the next day; we might have to light them off during the daytime, it just depends on coordination with the fire and police department[s]. Obviously, there’s road closures and there’s logistics that kick into action at that point,” says Randy Kennedy, Director of Marketing and Communications at the Nugget Casino Resort.
