July 4th 2013 ~ Fireworks in Sparks, NV

Celebrate 4th of July at Victorian Square & The Sparks Marina!

The City of Sparks is ready to help you celebrate the 4th with a fantastic fireworks show and lots of fun activities for the entire family to enjoy. If you missed last year’s celebration you are in for a treat this year. Many say the Star Spangled Sparks fireworks show is the best they have ever seen. Star Spangled Sparks kicks off at 6am at the Sparks Marina tomorrow! The fun continues at Victorian Square for the area’s longest fireworks display.
