CIVANA to Light Up Arizona Sky with Spectacular Drone Show, July 6

CIVANA – the Scottsdale area’s newest wellness resort – will be hosting their second annual spectacular aerial light show of 100 custom LED-lit drones on Saturday, July 6. The show will light up the night sky for Carefree and Cave Creek residents and visitors celebrating the Independence Day holiday weekend. Coupled with special resort and spa packages, culinary offerings, and other festivities at the resort throughout the weekend – including a Community Block Party – CIVANA is the ultimate Fourth of July weekend destination for visitors and locals alike.

With the absence of the traditional fireworks show in Cave Creek and several cities, CIVANA – a sustainable wellness resort and home away from home to local firefighters – has commissioned Firefly Drone Shows to present a dazzling aerial light show that will include a variety of designs and formations, as well as patriotic elements and synchronized music. The desert-friendly alternative to the traditional fireworks display – called “CIVANA Lights: Drone Show Spectacular” – will light up the night sky 300 feet above the ground and can be viewed up to a mile away.

Drone light shows have many benefits compared to traditional fireworks. Drones are an ideal option as they are safer for the audience and are less environmentally harmful. Not only do they have a lower risk of sparking wild fires, but they also eliminate air and noise pollution, thus being pet and wildlife friendly. There is also no waste or single-use materials in Firefly Drone Shows’ production.

CIVANA’s aerial light drone show is scheduled for Saturday, July 6 from 8:45–9 p.m., and is open to resort guests and the public. Resort guests who book any overnight stay on Saturday, July 6 will receive the VIP Viewing Experience which also includes access to unlimited daily fitness and health classes, resort amenities including the new state of the art Spa, complimentary parking plus two (2) complimentary tickets per room to the exclusive VIP Pool Party, which starts at 5 p.m. The VIP Pool Party includes complimentary culinary creations by renowned Chef Justin Macy, wine & beer, spirit tastings, live music, and premium seating for the Drone Show Spectacular. Additional VIP Pool Party Viewing tickets are $20 per registered overnight guest (13 or older). Children under 12 have complimentary access when accompanied by adult ticket holders.

Additionally, street side CIVANA and the Town of Carefree will be hosting a festive Community Block Party from 7–9:30 p.m. Guests and locals alike are invited to enjoy live music, culinary delights & food trucks, tasty beverages by Terras restaurant, family fun experiences, and more before the Drone Show spectacular starts. Access is free. CIVANA parking spaces are limited and are $25 per car for non-resort guests. Public street parking is accessible.
