Sugar Land, TX News (June 16, 2014) - Tickets to Fort Bend County’s largest Independence Day fireworks and family entertainment show are still available. The Star Spangled Spectacular is set for July 4, from 7 – 10 pm.
The festivities will culminate with a 15-minute patriotic display that will light the sky over Constellation Field, 1 Stadium Drive, home of the Sugar Land Skeeters.
Fort Bend Salutes America, a group of regional musicians, will perform patriotic music for the capacity crowd just prior to the start of a pyrotechnic display rivaling any in the region.
It’s a show described as constant action — radiant color combinations like violet/lemon; aqua/pink; and the time-honored tradition of red, white, and blue. Amazing effects such as crossette, twitter glittering, rings, and color-changing chrysanthemums will be mixed in to illuminate the skies in Sugar Land.
The grand finale is intended to be the ultimate crowd pleaser and the most exhilarating part of the display. The sky will erupt with multi-color peonies and thunderous salutes expected to leave the audience wanting more.
Live It Up Productions will also perform during the Star Spangled Spectacular. The group is based in southern California and includes a staff of accomplished producers, costume designers, and choreographers who provide an array of Broadway-style song and dance shows. Their team travels the world, performing at venues such as The Mirage Casino, Mandalay Bay, Gaylord Resort in Orlando, the Palm Springs Convention Center, and more. The group’s Sugar Land stop will include patriotic rock and country performances just before the Star Spangled Spectacular’s fireworks finale.
Other entertainment will include fun-filled family games and interactive inflatables. There will be onsite activity stations provided by Life Essentials Chiropractic, Sugar Land Art Alliance, H-E-B, Sugar Creek Baptist Church, and Shriners Hospital.
Shriners Hospital will provide face painting and balloon art, Pinots Palette will host a painting lesson/class, and the Indo American Forum will give away free bottled water.
The Star Spangled Spectacular at Constellation Field is free, but tickets are required to enter the venue due to fire code requirements.
Tickets are available to Sugar Land residents through June 22 at the Imperial Park Recreation Center, 234 Matlage Way. A driver’s license is necessary to show proof of residency. There is a maximum of six tickets per household, and they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Remaining tickets will be available to the general public beginning June 23.
Concession stands at the stadium will offer an assortment of food and beverages for purchase. Outside food/beverages will not be allowed.
Parking is limited at the stadium, so residents are encouraged to take advantage of a free shuttle from Kempner High School, 14777 Voss Road, from 6-11 p.m.
