Free event includes early bird Easter Egg Hunt, National Anthem Tryouts and much more
The Oklahoma City Dodgers will host their sixth annual Fan Fest Saturday, March 28 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. The event is open to the public, and admission and parking are free.
Although it is not required, those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP at okcdodgers.com/fanfest. Online registrants will be entered into a drawing to win a 4Topps nightly table rental during a 2020 OKC Dodgers game.
“Fan Fest has developed into an exciting tradition over the past few years,” said OKC Dodgers President/General Manager Michael Byrnes. “It’s that time on the calendar when fans are itching to get back to Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and we are eager to host them as we get ready to begin a new season.”
Easter Egg Hunt
Fan Fest will get into the Easter spirit early, offering an Easter Egg Hunt on the outfield grass for all children 12 years old and younger. Participants will be divided into three age groups: 0-3 years old, 4-7 years old and 8-12 years old. All participants must be registered in advance of Fan Fest at okcdodgers.com/fanfest.
National Anthem Tryouts
This year’s Fan Fest will again coincide with the team’s annual National Anthem Tryouts. Tryouts will take place on the Johnny Bench Plaza from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m., and although all 125 registration slots filled up less than one week after registration opened in early February, standby performers will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.
Fan Fest will also include another edition of “Dugout Dialogue” with team broadcaster Alex Freedman and a special guest.
