Sparks is a city located in Washoe County, Nevada. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 66,346. Although Sparks was originally distinct from Reno, they have both grown toward each other to such a degree that today the border between them is purely political. They are often referred to as a twin city (i.e. "Reno-Sparks"). According to the local joke, "Reno is so close to Hell you can see Sparks."
