Sparks Hometowne Christmas

Sparks Annual Hometowne Christmas Celebration

The City of Sparks is well known for their events - “It’s Happening Here,” as the city’s motto suggests. From fundraising walks at the Marina to car shows downtown to 4th of July, we find ways to celebrate heritage, culture, food, sports, and the grand-daddy holiday of them all, Christmas. This year, the Sparks Hometowne Christmas parade is a celebration of all special events. This year’s theme is “It’s Happening Here All Year Round: A Celebration of Our Hometowne Events!” Parade goers can expect Santa on a jetksi, snowmen eating ribs, and elves driving a sweet ’65 Mustang.

Come downtown on Saturday, December 6, 2014 for a traditional Christmas parade along with entertainment, photos with Santa, and arts and crafts. The tree lighting ceremony will be the night of Friday, December 5, 2014 with the parade on Saturday at 1:00pm.

Come down early and get hot chocolate compliments of Living Stones Church. Check in on Santa at Santa’s Village at the Schoolhouse, the elves at the Boys and Girls Clubs keep the Santa in the “ho-ho-ho” mood.
