From John Ascuaga's Nugget:
John Ascuaga's Nugget is proud to host the 14th annual Star Spangled Sparks fireworks show and 4th of July Celebration! We invite all Reno and Sparks residents to come down on Thursday, July 4th to celebrate.
Park and Ride Shuttle Service
Complimentary shuttles will provide round-trip transportation from Legends at Sparks Marina to Victorian Square during the event. Shuttles will pick up guests in the large dirt lot between Fudruckers and Popeye's starting at 6 p.m. Shuttles will run continuously throughout the event until after the fireworks show.
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 Theatres, and will include games, a super slide and mechanical rides. Ride tickets will be available for purchase just outside the Kids' Area.
The fireworks show will be broadcast live with music over KKOH News Talk 780. Tune in to hear music corresponding with the fireworks.
Live music from the main stage (located toward the West End of Victorian Avenue) will keep the crowd dancing into the evening. The Buddy Emmer Band will be providing live entertainment from 5:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Nick Sorrentino will be singing the National Anthem prior to the start of the fireworks show.
Sparks Summer Heat Car Show
The Sparks Summer Heat Car Show is a new addition to this year's Star Spangled Sparks Celebration in Victorian Square. The car show will go from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. There is a $10 entry fee, and proceeds will go to the Honor Flight program, which takes local veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit war memorials.
