Durham, N.C. — The Durham Bulls will kick off their home opener on Monday with a seven-game homestand featuring $1 concessions, fireworks shows, an Easter egg drop, music and more.
Monday's game against the Charlotte Knights starts at 6 p.m., but festivities for the night start at 5 p.m. when the gates open early for a live blues concert. Other features include post-game fireworks, a special entrance by Wool E. Bull and the homestand food special, a "Tater Tot Waffle."
Wednesday night will be the first-ever game night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, when fans can purchase a $20 ticket that includes a seat, two drink vouchers and access to classic board games at the ballpark in a private setting.
Thursday's game will feature $1 basic concessions, including hot dogs, soda and popcorn. At 7 p.m., there will be a wine tasting event, where fans can purchase a $20 ticket that will grant them exclusive access to a tasting event featuring Trinchero Wine.
The homestand continues on Friday, when the Bulls open a three-game set with the Gwinnett Braves. That night’s game will be followed by the season’s first Friday Night Fireworks show.
On Saturday, the Bulls will celebrate Negro League Night in association with Jackie Robinson Day. At the 6:30 p.m. game, the team will don throwback Negro League-style uniforms – all with the number 42 – to pay tribute to the legacy of Durham’s local Negro League stars.
The homestand comes to a close on Easter Sunday, when gates will open early for the 5 p.m. game. Prior to the event, at 3:30 p.m., kids can participate in an Easter egg drop, as thousands of candy-stuffed eggs will be dropped onto the DBAP outfield by a helicopter. Fans wishing to participate in the egg drop must register in advance.
