The crew from Entertainment Sports International is hard at it, setting up the PRINCIPAL FINANCIAL GROUP FAMILY FUN FEST, which is open to the public today from 4 until our 7 o’clock game time. Your Bees wrap up this four-game series against Beloit, and we encourage everyone to come out a little early for this free travelling festival. Come out, bring the kids, test your baseball skills, and check out all of the interactive exhibits.
The fun continues on Saturday, when we host our annual CUBS-CARDS RIVALRY NIGHT, as the Bees open up a three-game set with Clinton at 6 o’clock. We hope you can come out and show your passion for your favorite team. When you’re here, you can also give yourself a chance to win some great Cubs and Cardinals prizes from Golden Eagle Distributing and KCPS 1150 AM.
Saturday is also our big day for collecting care-package items for our troops. Members of Supporting Our Families & Troops (S.O.F.T.) will be accepting donations from 4:30 to 8 by the big flagpole, and also by the main gate starting at 5 o’clock.
Sunday is Louisa Communications Kids Day, when all kids 12 and under get in free and get to run the bases after the game. We’ll also have a bunch of lawn games for children, set up by our friends from Grade-A Plus.
