Sparks in the Park, an annual community festival being held this year at Huron Valley Milford High School in Highland Township, will take place this Saturday, June 25 beginning at 3 p.m. First started 11 years ago, it has grown into a summer festival attracting approximately 10,000 people annually.
What follows is a run-down of this year’s event schedule:
• The Great Campout and family activities — 3 p.m.
• Sparks Market Avenue — 4 p.m.

Moving the Sparks in the Park site to Milford High School offered event organizers the opportunity to expand the event by adding the Great Campout, hosted by Huron Valley Recreation and Community Education. Now in its fourth year, The Great Campout has become a popular Sparks in the Park attraction.
Campsites are 15-feet-by-15-feet and can accommodate up to six people. Each campsite is limited to two tents, and an adult must be present at each campsite. The cost is $35.
The camping includes a hot dog meal provided by the Milford High School Band Boosters, free access to the high school’s pool facilities, lawn games, VIP fireworks seating and parking, s’mores, and a breakfast the following morning sponsored by Rodnick Chiropractic.
