July 4th 2013 Fireworks ~ Sparks, Nevada

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.

With the popularity of this celebration you should plan ahead to arrive early and know where to park in advance. Here are some important road closures to be aware of:

•Victorian Avenue will close between Pyramid Way and 14th Street at 8 p.m.
•C Street westbound from Pyramid will be closed by 6 p.m. and 10th and 11th Streets between C Street and Victorian Avenue will also close by 6 p.m.
•Once the Nugget’s parking garage and the two City parking garages (C Street & 10th Street, and next to the Cinema) are full, there will be no vehicular access to those garages.
•Eastbound Prater Way from 15th Street will close after the firework show for approximately 30 minutes.
