Fireworks will light up the sky Tuesday, July 4 at the annual Sparks of Freedom celebration at Southlake Park.
The event, hosted by the Fire Department and sponsored by 4B, will run from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will benefit the Volunteer Fire Department.
Firefighter Tyler Roman said that proceeds will go toward new equipment and anything the group may need.
The event will feature music by the clay Potter Band, food, bounce houses, and vendors. As of presstime, the event will feature 14 vendors including Darte Glass, J. C.’s Tacos, Pop’s Brain Freezz Shaved Ice, Smoke Wagon BBQ, Ye Ye Concessions, ICE Cream Emergency, Street Treats, Good Time Burgers, Empowered Temple Karate, Farmersville Chiropractic and Sippie.
Entrance and parking to the event are free and fireworks will begin at 9:30 p.m. According to Roman, the Sparks of Freedom is a “pretty big show,” adding that it brings in people from other communities.
“We hope everybody comes out and enjoys themselves, we love that it benefits the fire department, but we do it for the community for them to come out and have an interaction with us and the city, everybody comes together as one big group.”
