The Star Spangled Spectacular at Constellation Field is Almost Here!

Sugar Land, TX - With America’s birthday less than a month away, now is the time to secure free tickets to the City of Sugar Land’s Star Spangled Spectacular at Constellation Field on July 4 from 6-10 p.m.

The event is intended to provide a fan-friendly, family venue that incorporates a rich holiday tradition for the local community. Planned activities include a 3D laser fireworks show, appearances from Skeeters’ mascots Swatson and Moe, dual entertainment stages in the outfield and much more.

The stadium accommodates a capacity of 10,500 and provides a safe alternative to Oyster Creek Park that lacks adequate infrastructure to host what has become a large-scale community event. Constellation Field provides adequate parking, restroom facilities and multiple entry points, amongst other advantages.

A festival site accommodating large-scale events like the City’s annual Fourth of July celebration is one of several projects voters will consider as part of a bond election in November. The projects have been developed based on extensive public feedback that has identified a need for public spaces for parks, special events and festivals that enhance the quality of life in Sugar Land and make it an even better place to live, work, play and visit.

Due to stadium capacity requirements, tickets will be required for admission. Free tickets for the Star Spangled Celebration at Constellation Field are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The general public may request six tickets per address by providing a Driver’s license at Imperial Park Recreation Center, 234 Matlage Way, or Constellation Field, 1 Stadium Drive.

No coolers or outside food will be allowed in the stadium; however, food and drinks will be available for purchase at concession stands. Free bottled water will be provided at booths throughout the concourse area. Families may bring blankets to spread along the outfield for an ideal view of entertainment while enjoying the largest Fourth of July picnic in town.
In addition to the stages in the outfield, there will be children’s entertainment throughout the concourse area. The official ceremony will begin at 9 p.m. with the singing of the National Anthem by American Idol contestant Andrea Chase. Other performances will include a cirque cube artist, daring aerialists performing jaw-dropping displays and an acrobatic trampoline show by Flippenout Productions.

Participants will be provided 3D glasses for Sugar Land’s first ever state-of-the-art laser and fireworks finale.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses interested in being a part of the event. For more information, contact the Sugar Land Parks and Recreation Department at (281) 275-2885 or visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/july4
