Scottsdale 4th of July Celebration at WestWorld returns for a ninth year to deliver patriotic and family entertainment capped off by one of Arizona’s largest fireworks displays, 4:30-9:30 p.m. Monday, July 4.

The 300,000 square-foot fully air-conditioned Tony Nelssen Equestrian Center at WestWorld will offer activities for the whole family, including a Parade of Heroes, live ensemble performances from hit movie film “Encanto,” lively backyard games and of course, a backyard barbecue.

The evening will culminate with the night sky lit with one of Arizona’s largest fireworks shows, beginning at approximately 9 p.m., according to a  press release.

Guests will be “Red, White & Cool” in the air-conditioned comfort of the North Hall at WestWorld with an exciting lineup of entertainment that features three performances by characters from feature film “Encanto” including Mirabel, Isabela, Luisa, Dolores, Pepa, Félix, and Camilo, singing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

In addition, “America’s Got Talent” Canine Stars Stunt Dog Show performs three times at the event, the release said.

Scottsdale 4th is known for its lively activities for the family to enjoy such as learning the cha-cha slide and chicken dance, old-fashioned cake walks, face painting and more, according to the release.

The Rodeo Arena is activated once again in 2022, with mutton busting for kids and the Copper State Rodeo Company presenting a Scottsdale 4th favorite bull riding competition.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., huge garage doors open to the west for the Scottsdale 4th of July grand finale fireworks display, lighting up the sky over the McDowell Mountains.

Scottsdale 4th of July in 2022 also continues with the second Parade of Heroes, recognizing leaders for their tireless efforts to protect and improve the lives of Arizonans. Heroes are honored in the categories of safety, fire safety, neighborhoods, veterans, healthcare, and community.

Each will take the stage to receive the honor and then together are ceremoniously escorted throughout the massive WestWorld complex where drive-in guests await the fireworks show.

Heroes are introduced to drive-in guests through the event’s own designated patriotic music radio channel, the press release stated.
