Fireworks: This year’s fireworks show will close out the event as the grand finale—launch time is 9 pm sharp. Listen to a soundtrack of all America’s greatest hits, including the old standards as well as a few more recent melodies. America’s songbook celebrates all that we have to be proud of in this great country so the soundtrack for the fireworks show is all about highlighting that patriotic spirit. As you listen to the music and watch the fireworks, enjoy opulent showers of glittering lights that cover every color of the rainbow. Feel their thunderous roar as they arc across the sky. Marvel at their beauty and at the amazing country that they represent. After all, isn’t that why we’re all here?
Throughout the Star Spangled Spectacular, performers will be providing the soundtrack for July 4th from two stages. The music at this year’s event will cover many corners of Americana, from Country to Funk, from Alternatve to Indie Pop.

Food & Drink
The Star Spangled Spectacular is Marana’s biggest signature event of the year, and this is where the food trucks show up in force. More than 30 food vendors!
If you’re looking for something to wash down that hot dog (or taco, pizza, kettle corn, etc) and you’re at least 21, look no further than the beer garden. Though the beer garden will be enclosed, all ages are permitted in these areas. Only those with wristbands will be able to purchase alcohol and no alcohol can be taken outside the beer garden perimeter.
The Star Spangled Spectacular is an event that kids will love. Inflatables of all shapes and sizes will keep the younger set busy. During the warm summer weather, nothing is more refreshing than plummeting down a waterslide, and that’s just one of the gigantic, air-filled attractions there will be at the event.
Once you’ve jumped through all the castles and slid down all the slides, stop by the free face painting station. Want to look like your favorite character from Beauty and the Beast? Be our guest! How about a classic character from Aladdin? Your wish is our command! Whatever face design you can imagine, the face painter is ready to oblige.
Once you’ve got your game face on, look around for the patriotic stilt walker. He won’t be hard to find because This Uncle Sam definitely drank his milk and ate his Wheaties when he was just a wee Nephew Sam. Today, he’s a towering seven feet tall, and he’s eager to wish you a Happy July 4th.
Attending the Star Spangled Spectacular means hanging out with your neighbors across Marana, including a number of local businesses who will have booths at the event. Whether you’re interested in learning more about health care options in the community, finding a local bank or credit union, or just doing some summer shopping, be sure to stop by the vendor area.
