Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- From Red Rock all the way to Henderson, Fourth of July fireworks illuminated the sky all across the Valley on Wednesday night.

Wet weather throughout the afternoon subsided in time for fireworks shows to commence in clear skies.

Station Casinos planned the majority of the local fireworks shows. Displays took place at Red Rock Resort, Green Valley Ranch, Fiesta Rancho, Aliante Station and Texas Station.

The city of Henderson, Boulder City and Primm Valley also held fireworks displays.

North Las Vegas held its Fourth of July celebration on Tuesday evening, while Lake Las Vegas opted to hold its festivities last weekend.

Many spectators said the cooler weather was a nice respite from sky-high temperatures seen earlier in the week.

Thousands of visitors spent the day on Las Vegas Boulevard with many planning to take in the fireworks from atop the Stratosphere and other Strip properties.
