ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WFRV) – What could be better than fireworks and the Fourth of July? How about both of those things PLUS some Green Bay Booyah baseball?!
The Green Bay Booyah and Festival Foods are teaming up to celebrate the Fourth of July Weekend with a full slate of baseball, live music, and fireworks on both Friday, July 3rd and Saturday, July 4th. It’s such a big event that one day is simply not enough.
The Booyah are welcoming the Rockford Rivets for a two game set beginning on July 3rd. Both baseball games on the weekend will begin at 4:35 p.m. with gates opening an hour prior to game time. Keeping with the safety plan put in place at Capital Credit Union Park, tickets to the baseball games will be limited to 25% capacity. Following the baseball games, another 2,000 fans will be admitted and allowed to socially distance on the field for the remainder of the celebration. This also follows the 25% capacity guidelines of a “concert event” at Capital Credit Union Park.
“This is a one-time thing for us,” says Brian Kuklinski, Corporate Advertising Manager with the Green Bay Booyah. “We normally ask to be out of town on the Fourth of July weekend because we can’t compete with the great things they do in downtown Green Bay. But for us to be able to step up and do it this year and do it in a socially responsible manner is something we’re very proud of.”
Live music on both days will start at 8 p.m. and will feature Conscious Pilot on July 3rd and Johnny Wad on July 4th. The Festival Foods Fireworks Shows will start at 9:30 p.m. both nights.
