July 4th Fireworks Display in Texarkana

Townsquare Media

Looking for a little Independence Day fun? This year the celebration takes place a bit early with Sparks in the Park on June 30.

Texarkana pulls out all the stops for the 10th annual fireworks extravaganza held at the Four States Fairgrounds located on Loop 245. The event is free and open to the public. But with all the construction going on, traffic may be a bit hairy for the event this year, so come early. Gates open at 4 p.m. and the show will start at 9:30 p.m. See the attached map for detailed directions.

Live Music on the State Line Fireworks Stage

There will be plenty of live music at this year’s Sparks event, so here’s a rundown of what to expect.

At 5 p.m.,  Recession Proof takes to the stage.

At 6 p.m., the event officially takes off with the Opening Ceremonies as skydivers descend from the skies in a patriotic tribute, followed by comments from Mayor Smith, a recognition of military troops, and the performance of the national anthem.

Between 6:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m., the Kosmic Girls and Koltrane Band will belt out some contemporary pop.

At 8 p.m., local favorite Copper Road takes to the stage to perform their southern rock and red dirt country music we’ve all come to love.

Finally, at 9:30 p.m. it is time for the main event, the fireworks display everyone comes for by Carl Standridge with Liberty Pyrotechnic of Texarkana.

And So Much More…

Also, to find your way around the park, here is a map so you know where to find other great attractions for the family to enjoy!

Your kids won’t want to miss the inflatable bounce houses by Metro PCS or the rock climbing wall by Texas A&M University.

Sports enthusiasts will want to be sure to visit the Texas Motor Speedway and Dallas Cowboys exhibits.

And then there’s a barnyard and sandbox to play in and animals to meet!

Then, don’t miss the fun games for kids of all ages including a water balloon toss, sack race, three-legged race, hula hoop and bubble gum blowing by Townsquare Media, featuring Andi Darby and Heather Fink.

This will be the summer event you won’t want to miss!
