Townsquare Media, the City of Texarkana, Ark., Southwest Arkansas REA and Bowie Cass Electric is proud to present "Sparks in The Park 2015" on Saturday, July 4, at the Four States Fairgrounds.

Sparks in The Park fun begins at 4 p.m. with plenty of activities for the entire family including Astro Jump Inflatables, McDonalds Giant Sand Box, and lots of games for the kids. Experience the rock climbing wall courtesy of Texas A&M-Texarkana and show your patriotism by entering several contests for some great prizes, like the Star Spangled Banner contest for the most patriotic costumes, best decorated strollers and wagons, even an ice cream eating contest. While you're at the Fairgrounds, visit the AG Learning Center, ride the kiddie train and visit some furry friends at Findley's Barnyard.
