Casino fireworks blasting off Friday; several area displays on Thursday

Niagara Gazette — Seneca Niagara Casino will hold its annual fireworks display at 9:40 p.m. Friday outside the casino.

The display will last approximately 20 minutes. The public is welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets, and also is encouraged to allow ample time for nearby parking. The rain date is Saturday.

If the weather cooperates, it’ll be a double bill on Friday. When the casino’s display ends, the fireworks at Niagara Falls State Park will kick off, at 10 p.m.

For those looking for a patriotic capper to their Fourth of July holiday on Thursday, have no fear, Fourth of July fireworks will fire off downtown. Niagara Falls State Park will put on its own fireworks display at 10 p.m. on Thursday.

A little further down the road, the city of Niagara Falls fireworks display will take place at 9:30 p.m. at Hyde Park on Thursday.

Fireworks will also launch at Oppenheim Park and Artpark at dusk on Thursday.

If you’re looking to get an early jump, there is a fireworks display scheduled over Lake Ontario with a view the lake’s shoreline and Krull Park in Olcott.

A fireworks display will also take place Wednesday outside Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel in Salamanca, and begins at approximately 9:30 p.m. near the outdoor parking lot. A rain date is slated for Thursday. 

In addition, Seneca Niagara Casino has other big events taking place this week.

More than $25,000 in Free Slot Play and cash will be up for grabs throughout the month, with a grand-prize trip to Las Vegas to represent Seneca Casinos in the national tournament.

On Saturday, at the 2,400-seat Seneca Niagara Events Center in Niagara Falls, comedian Drew Carey will perform an evening of adult comedy. Carey gained popularity with the shows “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and “The Drew Carey Show,” and now serves as the host of the famed game show, “The Price Is Right.” Tickets for the 8 p.m. show start at $45 and are on sale now at Seneca Casino box offices, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations, or by phone at 800-745-3000.
