Pride in the Sky has been the Independence Day celebration in Prosper for the past five years and this year will be no exception. The party begins at 5 p.m. on July 1 with a variety of activities.
The event schedule includes an array of live music, an interactive kid zone, a car show, a charity softball game and the biggest fireworks show around. Food trucks and local vendors will also be throughout the park.
Music will be playing throughout the park and ongoing until the fireworks begin. Live music will begin at 5 p.m. at the Pavilion by Windmill Playground and crowd favorite, DJ Clifford will be spinning tunes over by the Car Show and Kid Zone.
The fireworks show will begin around 9:30 p.m. and the Car Show will begin at 5 p.m. with the awards being announced at 9 p.m.
The Kid Zone will be open from 5 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in order to give families time to find their seats before the fireworks begin.
The Charity Softball Game will begin just after 7 p.m. Posting of the Flags by the Prosper Fire Department will begin around 7 p.m. and will be followed by the National Anthem and then the ceremonial first pitch. Again this year the Prosper Education Foundation will be taking on the Cornerstone Assistance Network of North Central Texas. Team captains are Melissa Randle (PEF) and Amy Bartley (Cornerstone). There are still a few players needed on both sides. The goal is for each player to raise $250 towards their charity of choice. Players receive a ceremonial jersey and VIP Parking the day of the event.
