Sparks in the Park is Saturday, June 24, at the Four States Fairgrounds in Texarkana. Gates open at 4PM. There are many activities planned and we want you to be prepared for all of the fun.

Do Bring: Sunscreen, chairs, bug spray, cameras.


Do NOT Bring: Alcohol, coolers, barbecue grills, pets or personal fireworks.


The fun and live music with family-friendly events goes all afternoon and ends with a fireworks show that promises to be bigger and better than any previous year. Visit the kids' play area with bounce houses and the giant sandbox. Get your face painted and experience the rock climbing wall. Whatever you do, don’t miss the great food or the live music on stage. Visit the AG Learning Center and cool off in the air conditioning while you look at all of the fun stuff for the kids and then be sure to visit Findley’s Barnyard.

The kids can also enjoy riding the kiddie train. Check out the Lead Foot Mud Drag Trucks up close and take your photos beside them. You can also win fantastic prizes in the many contests going on all afternoon. Dress up and enter the patriotic costume contest. It is fun for the entire family.
