SPARKS — John Ascuaga’s Nugget representatives on Wednesday announced the casino’s events for next month’s 13th annual Star Spangled Sparks, capped off by the region’s largest fireworks show.

All area residents are invited to come down on July 4 to celebrate.

Park and ride shuttle service from marina

Complimentary shuttles will provide round-trip transportation from Outlets at Legends at the Sparks Marina to Victorian Square during the event. Shuttles will pick up guests in the large dirt lot between Fuddruckers and Popeye’s restaurants starting at 6 p.m. Shuttles will run continuously throughout the event until after the fireworks show.

Kids’ area

Children will delight in the face painters, clowns and magicians roaming the square, as well as an array of rides and activities. The kids’ area will be located on Victorian Plaza, adjacent to Century Theaters, and will include games, a super slide and mechanical rides. Ride tickets will be available for purchase just outside the kids’ area.

Entertainment

Live music from the main stage near the west end of the street will include two local favorites this year: the Whitney Myer band and the Mark Sexton band will both be playing. The Mark Sexton Band will play from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Whitney Meyer will play from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Additionally Captain Melissa Beauchamp will be singing the National Anthem prior to the start of the fireworks show.

KKOH simulcast

The fireworks show will be broadcast live with music over KKOH News Talk 780. Tune in to hear music corresponding with the fireworks.
