The City of Villa Rica’s Special Events, the Parks, Recreation, Leisure Services Department will host our 14th Annual Fireworks Display Extravaganza on Wednesday, July 3, 2018 at the Villa Rica Civic Center & Sports Complex (V-Plex). The rainout date is scheduled for Friday, July 5, 2019. The fireworks display is free and the presentation will be conducted by East Coast Pyrotechnics which produces hundreds of fireworks shows annually. This year’s event will kick-off at 5:00 p.m. and include a national anthem performance by Holly Halcomb, lead female vocalist for The Springs Band. 
 
This year’s concert event will open with performances by The Springs Band from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. “The Springs feature both male and female married vocals. The versatile multi-award-winning duo delivers Country, Southern Rock, Pop, and traditional favorites, offering something for the whole family. Their back to back, 2018 Country Music Association Festival Spotlight & 2017 CMA Festival Emerging Artist, Billboard Charting Country Albums. The Springs and their band have been blessed to perform their highenergy family friendly shows all over America. They have performed on stage with over 200 major artists, including Kelly Clarkson, Hunter Hayes, Eric Church, Jake Owen, Florida-Georgia Line, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Reba, Craig Morgan, Toby Keith, just to name a few.”  
 
At 7:30 p.m. the event’s headlining act, Electric Avenue – The 80’s MTV Experience, will take the stage.  “A high-definition snapshot of an era when vintage synthesizers and drum machines were at the top of the food chain, a thing called Radio. Electric Avenue is, hands down, the most accurate and exciting 80’s Pop Tribute bands you’re going to find anywhere this side of 1988. Electric Avenue replicates the look, sound and feel of many original 80’s pop groups. Electric Avenue delivers spot-on renditions of Tears for Fears, Wham!, Duran Duran, Simple Minds, Howard Jones, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Level 42, Naked Eyes, Soft Cell, Kenny Loggins, INXS, Prince, The Clash, OMD, David Bowie and more. Unless you have a DeLorean with a fully charged Flux Capacitor, you’re not going to find a more authentic 80’s pop tribute in the known universe.”
