(April 16, 2018): The great American pastime is back on America’s birthday!
York Traditions Bank and Eventive, the event planning and production division of the York Revolution, announced today that the Revs will “play ball” on July 4, marking the first time in five years the team’s schedule has featured a home game on Independence Day.
The party in downtown York will begin at 3:45 p.m. with free family fun on the Brooks Robinson Plaza, outside the ballpark. Presented by CGA Law Firm, the pre-game festivities will include inflatables, face painting, balloon art, and more.
At 5 p.m., the defending Atlantic League Champion Revolution will take on the Sugar Land Skeeters. The first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive red, white, and blue glow necklaces, and the team will fill the breaks in the action with patriotic-themed entertainment and contests, including a costume contest for local Uncle Sams and Samanthas. Tickets for the game can be purchased here.
The free party resumes at 7:30 p.m. that night, when the Revs will open the gates to the public to let more people into July4York, presented by York Traditions Bank. When the game concludes, fans who watched the game can keep their seats as arriving friends and neighbors fill in available seats or relax on the field.
The Unforgettable Big Band will keep the party going with swinging sounds, the Penn State Children’s Hospital Playground will be open and free, and the ballpark’s concession stands will offer up beefy Hatfield hot dogs and the other essentials of a July 4th celebration.
Finally, at 9:30 p.m., the night will culminate in the area’s biggest July 4 fireworks display, the American Town Fireworks show presented by Glatfelter Insurance Group.
Admission to the plaza activities is free, game tickets start at just $8 for seats in the Appell Lawn, and the post-game festivities are also free.
