Railcats Continue to Plan the Fun

Railcats stream summer fun to fans and provide new stadium options without baseball.

The Railcats are shifting into some alternative uses for their stadium this summer, including some of their standard offerings without the baseball part.

The RailCats are excited to open their ballpark to the community this summer with a unique line up of special events. The ‘Cats kick off their summer events with a pair of Family Nights at the Steel Yard on July 3rd and July 4th. Fans will have the opportunity to experience some of The Region’s only fireworks shows and live music on both nights, with all you can eat ticket packages starting at $23 for adults and $17 for children. Fireworks will also be streamed live on both nights on the RailCats’ Facebook Page.

Independence Day weekend Family Nights at the Steel Yard will feature the band Nawty on July 3rd and The Muddsharks on July 4th, starting at 7 p.m. Tailgating and viewing parking spaces will also be available in the stadium parking lots for $30 per vehicle starting at 5:30 p.m., with a $5 donation going to the FoodBank of Northwest Indiana. Ticket availability is limited based on local government social distancing guidelines.

Again, good practice of social distancing and some new rules and guidelines for fans (and staff to adjust to).

The live stream of fireworks feels like a new addition during the COVID lock-down that has a chance to become a standard offering in the future. Plus is our value-added membership site.
