Tropicana Atlantic City adds Independence Day to Weekly Fireworks Schedule


Fireworks by Grucci to Perform July 4th and Weekly Shows from Memorial Day through Labor Day 

BELLPORT, NY (May 24, 2017) – The Grucci family is proud to announce its commission for the third year in a row by Tropicana Atlantic City to celebrate the summer season with Fireworks by Grucci! To start off summer with a “bang,” Tropicana will host the first of 17 firework shows on Memorial Day weekend. The series starts on Friday, May 26th and then every Saturday night until September 9th, plus Tuesday, July 4th. The Tropicana will first dazzle the sky with a vibrant firework performance and then perform their Multimedia Light & Sound Show. The combination of these two spectacular mediums will make for an incredible summer night in Atlantic City!

The firework shows will be designed and performed by Guinness World-record holding Fireworks by Grucci! The sixth-generation, family-owned and operated firework performance company has been partnering with Tropicana Atlantic City since 2015, when the first summer of fireworks began at the luxurious casino and resort. Each of the 17 performances will be displayed from the beachfront and will include intricately designed scenes and vivid effects including Grucci high aerials and grand illuminations.

“It is an incredible honor to again collaborate with Tropicana Atlantic City for the third consecutive year,” says Phil Grucci. “Our mission has always centered around creating lasting memories for friends and families and bringing smiles to peoples’ faces. We love that we have the opportunity to do that every weekend of the summer, and now on Independence Day, thanks to the Tropicana and we look forward to performing for their wonderful guests each week.”
