The fifth annual Sparks in the Motorsports Park event is scheduled for this 4th of July and will be the biggest display of fireworks in town.
The Atlanta Motorsports Park is organizing the event, which will kick off on Wednesday at 5 p.m. when the gates open.

Admission is free and parking is on a first-come, first serve basis and visitors are encouraged to carpool and arrive early.

In addition to the fireworks extravaganza around 9 p.m., there will be lots of fun activities for the entire family to enjoy.

Live music from the Pain Killers, food vendors, a bouncy house and balloon artistry are always big hits, and at 6 p.m. a $500 cash prize will be awarded to the winner of a Big Wheel Race on the racetrack. The race is open to participants 18 years and older and no open toe shoes are allowed. Bring your own Big Wheel, no motorized vehicles are allowed.

There will also be a pro drifter show and a best patriotically-decorated bicycle contest open to all ages.

No outside food or alcoholic beverages are allowed.

The event will conclude by 9:30 p.m.

The event is sponsored by AMP and the Dawsonville Downtown Development Authority.

Sparks in the Motorsports Park has a Facebook event page where more details can be obtained as the event nears.
