Sparks Marina, Victorian Square, and John Ascuaga's Nugget July 4, for another year of family entertainment, food and drink vendors, and, of course, the region's most spectacular fireworks display.
Among this year’s attractions at the Sparks Marina are the Model Dairy milk carton boat races, free tethered hot air balloon rides, a fun run/walk, a pancake breakfast, climbing wall, and a display of army and air force vehicles that kids can explore.
A highlight of the event each year is the Sparks Idol talent competition. Sparks Idol starts at 11 a.m., and showcases the regions most talented singers, dancers, comedians, and performers in front of thousands of attendees.
The fun moves from the Sparks Marina to Victorian Square at 4 p.m., featuring the Buddy Emmer Band playing on the main stage at the Nugget from 5-9:30 p.m. At 9:45 p.m., look to the skies over the Nugget for the best fireworks display in Northern Nevada.
