Sparklebration Independence Day Celebration
July 4, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm$6.
Sparklebration will feature an All-American Food Court with a fine summer selection of foods. Entertainment will include “The Dennis Lee Show” and “Bill “Elvis” Lindsey” on stage while Fritzy Bros. One-Man Circus, Tony The Balloon Guy, and The Plant Guy stroll the grounds. Free face painting will be available and for a nominal charge there will also be Bounce Houses and Pony Rides and a Petting Zoo for the kids.
Those who want to earn trophies or defend past titles can sign up for the Watermelon and Hot Dog Eating Contests or the Karaoke Contest. The Karaoke Contest will award cash prizes to the winners and will be limited to the first 20 contestants so sign up early.
A spectacular fireworks show by Zambelli Fireworks is scheduled for 9:15 p.m. (weather permitting). The fireworks are best viewed from the hillside inside the fairgrounds and, as, Sparklebration Chairman Tracy Thompson points out, the fairgrounds rely on admission fees to pay for the fireworks as the fair association receives no funding from the county to host and run the event. Your paid attendance to the event will help keep it going for the future.
The gates will open at 4 p.m. Parking is $5 per vehicle and admission is $6 per person for those 13 years old and older. Kids 12 and under are free.
