Incline Village Crystal Bay will debut a new way to celebrate the 4th of July this year, with a drone ‘SkyShow’ lighting up the night sky in celebration of the holiday. The decision was made in consideration of fire and environmental risks posed by a pyrotechnic fireworks display, shifting a longstanding tradition with an innovative new approach. The celebration, dubbed the ‘Incline Village Crystal Bay July 4th SkyShow,’ is a joint effort between Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitors Bureau (IVCBVB), the Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID), the Incline Village Crystal Bay Community & Business Association (IVCBA), the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe and the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation.
