The nine minute show will feature fireworks shot off from the tops of five properties, including Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch Resort, and Red Rock Resort. Texas Station and Fiesta Rancho will be a shared location.

Grucci Fireworks created and will shoot off the display. They are the same group responsible for the New Year's fireworks on the Strip. Planning for the show started eight months ago.

“If they have the song “Money,” you will see dollar signs. You will see everything that makes people go: ‘ooh and ahh’," Larry Goetz with Grucci Fireworks said.

The show is slated to start sometime after 9 p.m. Wednesday.
