City of Sparks Hopes to Boost Tourism With More Events

Posted: Updated:

The City of Sparks is hoping to lure in more special events selling events organizers on their variety of venues and amenities.

People from around the country are touring places like Golden Eagle Regional Park, the Sparks Marina, and Legends.

Officials say the city's versatility gives more options to the tour group like this weekend's wakeboard finals.

One organizer says these tours help him decide on a location for his large-scale craft beer festival.

"Based on the other events that take place here in the area, like the rib festival, clearly people are excited for events of that sort and I think our's fits in with that really nicely," says Rick Boyd, Barley Bros. Traveling Beer Show.

Mayor Geno Martini says the city is always looking to bring in new special events especially because of the boost they give to local businesses.
