Desert Diamond Casinos, an enterprise of the Tohono O’Odham Nation, is sponsoring this year’s annual Fireworks Celebration from “A” Mountain. This marks the third consecutive year that Desert Diamond Casinos has stepped up to sponsor the City of Tucson “A” Mountain Fireworks Celebration. This year’s show is scheduled to begin at approximately 9:15 p.m., Wednesday, July 4, 2012.

“The City of Tucson sincerely appreciates the support from Desert Diamond Casinos to help continue this proud tradition in our community,” said City Manager Richard Miranda. "The City of Tucson and the Tohono O'Odham Nation continue to sustain and solidify a strong partnership in preserving and promoting community events. A special thanks goes to Ward 5 Council Member Richard Fimbres and Mayor Jonathan Rothschild in this effort. Independence Day is a national holiday and the City is again honored to offer a location where the community can safely celebrate this important day with a patriotic display of fireworks.”

Those attending the celebration downtown may enjoy the “A” Mountain fireworks show from the Tucson Convention Center’s (TCC) Parking Lot B, which is off Granada Avenue between Congress Street and Cushing Street.
