The City of Sugar Hill has made the difficult decision to cancel the Sparks in the Park event for 2020. The cancellation comes after careful deliberation and consideration of the scale of the event, the number of positive cases of COVID-19, and the health and welfare of our community, guests, staff, volunteers and vendors that make this night possible.
Sparks in the Park, held annually on July 3rd, was moved to the new date of August 1st due to event restrictions outlined in Governor Kemp’s Executive Order in April.
The annual event is held at E.E Robinson Park North and consists of food vendors, inflatables, and live entertainment, rounding out the night with, arguably, one of the most spectacular fireworks shows in Georgia. Sparks in the Park is attended each year by a crowd of over 10,000 people and is a special day and night for our community.
City Manager Paul Radford says, “We are deeply disappointed to announce the cancellation of the Sparks in the Park event. We know that the community looks forward to this event yearly, but it is with the public health and safety of our community in mind that we make this difficult but responsible decision.” Mayor Steve Edwards added “We look forward to continuing this community tradition with the 2021 version of Sparks in the Park that will be an unequalled, unrivaled and fun-filled event for all ages! We are counting down the days until July 3rd, 2021, when we can gather together again to celebrate our country and our freedom.”
We remain committed to our community and thank you for your patience and support while we work to plan future events, keeping the health and safety of all involved at the top of our list.
