It's back! If you are a lover of "corny" puns, then we are all "ears"! 16 punsters go head-to-head in the second annual Pun-Off com-pun-tition. Each punster has 12 seconds to come up with a pun. Then, the punsters will go back and forth until someone can't come up with on in 12 seconds.

We’ll practice easy choreography, follow the leader style, and then parade through the streets, spreading banana cheer to all SPARKcon attendees. Remember, bananas have to stay with the bunch-- all inflatable bananas must be returned to circusSPARK.
Our parks and plazas belong to us. Therefor it's important for us to make the best use of them. The Raleigh Urban Rangers have embraced this charge and regulary plan events that treat open urban spaces, plazas and even parking lots as shared living rooms. Join us for a Hammock Hang in Market Square right off Fayettville Street. Take a load off and lay back in one of our hammocks and recharge before finishing your SPARKcon experience. This low-key event is powered by the Urban Rangers who snagged the following sponsors to make it happen: Eno Hammocks and the American Institute of Architecture.
