Community Spirit Sparklers are free and a great way to promote your organization while interacting with the public. Spirit Sparklers provide a patriotic treat, craft or interactive activity for 300 guests.

These are just a few ideas. You may choose from your own treats, craft or activity too! We ask that each Spirit Sparkler provide a different activity, so the sooner you return your application, the better chance you have of selecting your preferred activity. See application below.
