Get Ready For Three Nights of Fireworks Downtown at Hodgetown
Fourth of July weekend means fireworks. If you're at Hodgetown watching the Sod Poodles, that means three nights of fireworks.
It makes sense when you think about the calendar this year. July Fourth falls on a Sunday. Hodgetown has fireworks every Friday. You might as well split the difference and have them on Saturday; which is exactly what they're doing.
Personally, I'm actually a little excited about it. I live far enough away that I can see the fireworks from Hodgetown without it causing my dogs to run for the hills. I've sat in my backyard on more than one occasion and watched the show.
Add the extra Saturday night show, and now I get those three firework shows plus all of the usual ones I can see from my house on July Fourth. My kids are going to lose their tiny little minds.
All of this of course hinges on the weather deciding to play ball (pun intended). We do have rain in the forecast for the next several days. Hopefully it will stick to either early enough in the day to not be a problem, or in the overnight hours.
Gates at Hodgetown open up at 6:05 PM Friday and Saturday. The gates open up at 5:30 PM on Sunday for the July Fourth game.
Baseball and fireworks are always a good mix. I always think back to one of my favorite scenes from The Sandlot. You know the one. It's the night game scene where they try to play, but they all get distracted by the show.
As always, you can find out more information by visiting the Sod Poodles website.
