“Rockets over the Red Mesa” with the Nevada POPS Orchestra on 4th of July at Eureka Casino in Mesquite

The Nevada POPS have brought the excitement of live musical performances to Southern Nevada for more than 20 years and the Eureka Casino Resort is proud to host them this Fourth of July,” said Greg Lee, President of Eureka Casino Resort.

“Rockets over the Red Mesa,” produced by Las Vegas Display Firework Inc., is a great tradition and adding the POPS to the show will undoubtedly make it a night to remember.
