The annual event takes place on the library’s Johnson Terrace.
“It’s a great place to enjoy watching the fireworks,” said Virginia Stebbings, who has attended every year since the first event in 2008. Not even the 101 degree heat in 2012 deterred then 92 year-old Stebbings.
DJ Kailen Nelson and Magician Matt Dunn will be back by popular demand. Both entertainers have performed at Light a Spark for the past five years.
Scheel’s Catering will provide small bites throughout the evening. Dozens of cakes, pies, cupcakes and treats from local bakeries and restaurants will be given as prizes to cakewalkers who dance around the terrace landing on stars labeled with book characters such as Fancy Nancy, The Lorax, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Proceeds from the cakewalks and the cash bar will be matched by a donor and designated to fund Sunday library hours beginning in September.
For a chance to win four tickets to Light a Spark, sign up at the library before June 22. Tickets are $44 for adults and $20 for teens and children (free for children under 5 years). For more information or to register, visit lightaspark.org, email [email protected] or call 651 275 4338 ext 130.
