LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JANUARY 01: Fireworks illuminate the skyline over the Las Vegas Strip during an eight-minute-long pyrotechnics show put on by Fireworks by Grucci titled "America's Party" during a New Year's Eve celebration on January 1, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. An estimated 318,000 visitors gathered to watch more than 80,000 fireworks shoot from the rooftops of hotel-casinos to welcome the new year. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

In another blow to the local economy, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority announced that the annual fireworks show on the Strip on New Year’s Eve has been cancelled. Steve Hill, the CEO of the LVCVA said that the decision was made to ensure the safety and security of visitors and of employees of local resorts. Local officials agree that the cancellation of the fireworks show will affect the bottom line of the local economy but are unsure of how it will affect visitation overall for the New Year’s Eve holiday. It is thought that New Year’s Eve will still draw an abundance of travelers to town, albeit without the fireworks show to watch.
