City Clarifies Report on Star Spangled Sparks Daytime Events

Posted: Updated:
The City of Sparks wants to clarify some information reported in today's Reno Gazette-Journal regarding the annual Fourth of July Star Spangled Sparks event.

The newspaper reported that daytime events were canceled after the city pulled financial support. But a City of Sparks representative says the information is inaccurate and released this statement:

The Chamber has been the event producer for the daytime events at the Sparks Marina during the Star Spangled Sparks festivities. The City of Sparks’ Tourism & Marketing Committee has provided funding in previous years, as have other sponsors.
This year, the Chamber did not request funding from the City for the Star Spangled Sparks daytime event and in fact had previously decided that it would not hold the event.
