Santa’s coming to “The Hive” a little early once again this year, thanks to Burlington Kiwanis.
It’s our annual Christmas Eve in July, a promotion that has given Bees baseball a little bit of publicity on ESPN.com. You can check it out here. Our theme night is listed third, right after “Speed Dating Night” and “Harry Potter Night.” You gotta love all of the fun, creative promotional ideas that minor league teams are pulling out of their hats.
We’re getting in the holiday spirit here. In just a little bit, we’ll be decking the ballpark with yuletide decor, and the Christmas carols are ready to go. So come out and celebrate the holidays a little early on Christmas Eve in July. All kids 12 and under get in free tonight, and they get a chance to win great prizes from the Burlington Kiwanis Club.
Game time is 7 o’clock, as the Bees and Whitecaps wrap up this four-game series like a Christmas present. It’s pur last home game until Saturday, when we host Jimmy Buffett Night.
