Star Spangled Sparks event

Sparks, NV ~ The Sparks Police want to remind eveyone about this year's Star-Spangled Sparks special event:  There will be traffic restrictions in and around the Victorian Square on July 4th before the 6pm kickoff.  Expect a lot of pedestrian traffic throughout the downtown area as well.  We want to remind everyone to leave your pets at home, no glass beverage containers, and please, no personal fireworks.  There are many shuttle services offered along with bike shuttles and valet services.  Don’t forget the sunscreen, extra water and some patience, as this special event will draw a large crowd.    We hope to see you there!
