Wayne's World, Bad News Bears kick off Birdcage summer movie viewing
Schwing! In addition to our goal of making Canaries games a premier Sioux Falls summertime experience, we're also planning on turning The Birdcage into an awesome venue beyond baseball. This includes last autumn's 1st Annual Canaries Beerfest, future live music concerts, and movie viewings. Why limit that giant, new and beautiful Daktronics video board to just videos and live footage during baseball games?
So, on Saturday, The Birdcage turns into "Wayne's World." Fans are encouraged to stick around after "Saturday Night Live on a Saturday Day Night... Live Night" to watch the full-length widescreen feature of SNL's most successful SNL cinematic franchise! Even better news -- with the 6:05 game being the second leg of a doubleheader, the 7-inning game means an even earlier start time for Wayne's World. It's Party Time! It's Excellent!
Three weeks later, it's our celebration of the 45th Anniversary of one of the best baseball movies of all time, Bad News Bears. We'll have Morris Buttermaker koozies available to early arriving fans and part of an online ticket package. We'll show some of the best clips from the movie during the game. And then, we'll show the whole thing!
MORE BIG, BOLD PROMO NIGHT BASHES coming to The Birdcage!
Yee-haw! The Canaries are playing the Cleburne Railroaders, so why not mess with Texas themes? Wear a cowboy hat, get a ticket discount. Enter a contest where the "Most Texas" costume wins a $100 Canaries EZ Ticket book -- and use your imagination. (We're looking at you, cowboys and cowgirls, and wannabe cowboys and cowgirls!) There will be some ropin' and a (water gun) shootout! We'll have a "Duell" -- our GM Duell Higbe, that is. All music will be by Texas-based musicians, so get ready for some Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin, George Strait, and ZZ Top, ya'll. Plus, it's our first College Night at The Birdcage! $5 tickets to current college students with valid I.D.! And, as always, it's Thirsty Thursday! -- Get two domestic 16 oz. tallboys for $10 or two craft/import 16 oz. tallboys for $12 (through the end of the 5th inning).
Reminder: Sundays are Sunday Family FunDays... Play catch in the outfield before the game and run the bases after the game! Family 4-packs -- 4 tickets, 4 hot dogs, 4 sodas for $50! (Online purchase required). That's about half price!
IN THE WORKS FOR LATER IN THE SUMMER...
