It's that time of year again for the annual Sparks in the Park Saturday, June 24 at the Four States Fairgrounds in conjunction with the City of Texarkana, Arkansas.

We're going to have a good old fashioned red, white and blue celebration with lots of family friendly events and contests. Visit the kids play area with Astro Jump bounce houses or the giant sandbox. Get your face painted and experience the rock climbing wall.  Make sure you visit the AG Learning Center and Findley’s Barnyard plus you can ride the kiddie train and see the Lead Foot Mud Drag Trucks up close and personal or take a ride on the Punisher Monster Truck. Red River Army Depot will once again have tanks, trucks and armored vehicles on display.

You can also enter some cool contests like the patriotic costumes contest, the patriotic strollers and rollers contest, the Sparks photography contest, the seed spitting contest or the Oreo stacking contest. Some great prizes will be awarded for entering these contests. To participate, entry forms are available to download at our website.

In addition to great food available for purchase there will be live music on the State Line Fireworks stage with the return of the 'Dusty Rose Band' Texarkana's most requested band.

And don't forget the most exciting event of Sparks in the Park is an all-new Fireworks display choreographed with music beginning at 9:30PM.

Don't miss Sparks in the Park Saturday, June 24, from 4PM - 10PM. Admission and Parking is FREE.
