McIntosh March 5k - September 23

Hosted by Advent Physical Therapy, this 5k will be taking place at the Sparta Sports Park! Go for a beautiful fall run amongst the changing leaves and the cool fall air. All participants will get apples and cider at the finish line! All of the proceeds from the race will go back to the Sparta Sports Park, so you'll be getting a nice run and supporting our community at the same time!

Homecoming Parade & Pep Rally - September 29

Join us in Sparta Town Square for the Homecoming Parade and the crowning of the Homecoming King! Cheer and get hyped up for the homecoming game! Go Spartans!

Make sure to mark your calendar for these fun events! If you find yourself getting bored and there isn't an event going on that day, take some time to support local! Shop in downtown Sparta, get a bite to eat from one of our amazing restaurants, go apple picking at a local farm, and so much more! Supporting local goes a long way to helping the community, so make sure to schedule that into your fall fun this year!
