Kids of all ages can enjoy America’s Pastime this summer with a loaded slate of events at Dell Diamond! The Round Rock Express announced the team’s season lineup of kids activities and promotions on Friday afternoon, highlighted by the return of H-E-B Kids Day, special theme nights and the revamped Express Kids Club.
Once again, every Sunday home game will be an H-E-B Kids Day, complete with pregame events outside the stadium and postgame run the bases for those 12 years and under. The kid-themed games continue with Education Day on Wednesday, April 19 and include Daddy-Daughter Date Day (May 21), Princess Night (June 19), Superhero Night (July 17) and Harry Potter Night (July 31).
Education Day has a special 11:35 a.m. first pitch, perfect for schools and homeschool students to come out and learn in a unique environment. The day includes pregame presentations by representatives from the Austin Zoo and other local figures that focus on wildlife, weather, anti-bullying and more. Email [email protected] for field trip information and special pricing for this learning opportunity at the ballpark.
New in 2017, the Express will host Daddy-Daughter Date Day. Fathers and their daughters will enjoy a special day date at the ballpark that includes the opportunity to participate in on-field promotions throughout the game.
Dell Diamond will be transformed into an enchanted kingdom on Monday, June 19 for an even bigger and better Princess Night. Complete with all your favorite princesses, this second-year theme night will also include a special $11 infield reserved ticket or $16 infield reserved ticket package that comes complete with a Round Rock Express tiara and admission to a pregame princess parade around the warning track. Kids and adults alike are encouraged to dress up as their favorite storybook character for photo ops with royalty.
Help defend Dell Diamond from villains on Monday, July 17 for our second annual Superhero Night. Protectors of justice can purchase an $11 infield reserved ticket or $16 infield reserved ticket package that comes with a custom E-Train cape as well as access to a pregame superhero parade around the warning track. Don those superhero costumes and aid us in fighting crime!
Celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday on Monday, July 31 with Harry Potter Night. Muggles, witches and wizards alike are all welcome to the ballpark to enjoy a magical night of Hogwarts-themed fun. Apparate to Diagon Alley before heading to the ballpark and pick up a wizardly costume for the game.
