The City of Fishers has named its new Fourth of July celebration, and although Spark!Fishers will retain some qualities of past celebrations, its biggest offering is to fully involve the Fishers community in the celebration.
“When the City decided to spearhead a summer event in the Nickel Plate District, we wanted to create something community-led, first and foremost,” stated Fishers’ Mayor Scott Fadness in a press release from the city. “Spark!Fishers pays homage to the rich history of our community while celebrating how it has and will continue to ignite our future.”
Some of the names overseeing Spark!Fishers as it develops include Fadness, Conner Prairie CEO Norman Burns, Hamilton Southeastern Schools Superintendent Allen Bourff, and past HSE S.P.O.R.T.S. Executive Director Lynda Carlino. Approximately 80 members from across the community serve on Spark!Fishers seven committees as they work to decide on the event’s details.
This year, the event will be a Friday/Saturday celebration instead of Fishers Freedom Festival’s typical Saturday/Sunday set up. Some of the qualities Spark!Fishers will offer include a street fair, a concert, a 5k run/walk, a parade and a fireworks show.
Details are still unfolding for the event. For more, visit sparkfishers.com.
