The Fourth of July is the biggest event in Sparkman. Get with your neighbors and build a float based on current events, sports teams, movies or whatever you can get 20 people to agree on. There are many resources in and around the neighborhood for materials, ideas and labor. Many neighbors decorate rented trailers from U-Haul or AA Rental to compete for best themed float or the coveted "People's Choice" award.

Take a look at the huge gallery of Sparkman floats featured in The Dallas Observer to find inspiration.
