We took part in the Kids Nation program last year, taking in a Red Sox/Orioles game and love that we were able to bring the Propah Toddlah to his first baseball game. The “Kid Nation” program has launched for the 2017 season which again is giving 25,000 free game tickets to kids. There is free and paid option Kid Nation – both of which get the free game ticket! Additionally, the program offers access to exclusive Kid Nation events, discounts at the Red Sox store among special offers. Take a look at the different options to see what fits your family, especially if you hit up multiple Sox games a season!
Check out Wally's Opening Day, a new 30 minute show released this Spring, is an adorable family romp, which has some very familiar voices: Wally’s voice is played by Tom Kenny aka Mr. SpongeBob SquarePants! And some other notable voices include Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie, Two Broke Girls), H Jon Benjamin (Bob’s Burger, Archer), and Lenny Clarke (Rescue Me). Our little toddler already loves Wally and I think the love will only grow as we take him to more ball games.
The concessions are killer this year. You've got your good ol' stand bys (Cracker Jack's, Peanuts, Fenway Franks etc) but they've also got some amazing new items and souvenir stuff (Wally and Baseball mitt bowls). I happen to know that one of the Stowe children literally housed a bag of the Cheetos popcorn, it was that good. I can remember going to games in high school and there was no where near the selection. There's something for everyone, even salads and fruit, which is amazing no that I'm committed to losing the baby weight!
The Showcase, which is a traveling Fenway Park and includes a batting cage, pitching stations, and a virtual reality experience, will be traveling throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Rhode Island this summer. The initial kick-off event for this season will be at Faneuil Hall on
There's something magical to me about Fenway and the Red Sox. Maybe it's because I've gone to games with my family growing up, with high school friends, with college friends, with co-workers when I worked at the Gap even and now with my own family. There's so many fun memories with so many different people. I can't wait to make more and I hope you consider planning your trip to Fenway in the very near future!
