The annual Spark!Fishers festival, ignited by First Internet Bank, will return to Fishers’ Nickel Plate Cultural District this summer. Kicking off on Tuesday, June 22 and running through Saturday, June 26, the weeklong festival will offer different ways for the community to celebrate each day. This year’s theme, Hometown Heroes, will honor the Fishers residents who have served our country and our community, from the U.S. Armed Forces to the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re excited to host these popular summer traditions to bring our community back together after a difficult year,” said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “Our team is coming together to make sure we’re providing a COVID-safe environment while giving our residents a little bit of normalcy. Spark!Fishers is truly a celebration of our community and there’s nothing else I’d rather see than everyone back together again.”
Last year’s festival was cancelled due to COVID-19, and as vaccination adoption increases and cases decline in Fishers, Fishers Parks plans a full slate of summer events such as the Fishers Farmers’ Market, Summer Concert Series, and Spark!Fishers with safety as top of mind.
The patriotic celebration will be packed full of family-favorites and Independence Day traditions, while showcasing what it means to be uniquely Fishers.
“First Internet Bank was happy to learn the Spark!Fishers celebration was returning this year,” said David Becker, President and CEO of First Internet Bank. “As we move closer to the completion of our new headquarters in the Nickel Plate District of Fishers, this is a special opportunity that allows us to celebrate with our neighbors and support the community.”
