Family Fun at Fenway for $5
July 25, 2013

Five dollars doesn’t go that far these days, but it can get you into a fun family event this weekend at Fenway Park, the 8th annual “Futures at Fenway.”

Saturday, July 27th, the Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox AA affiliate) will play against the Harrisburg Senators (Nationals AA Affiliate). The Fenway Park gates open at 11 a.m. for the noon game. It’s a really great chance for fans to get a firsthand glimpse at some of the Red Sox most promising prospects.

But the day isn’t just about baseball. There’s a post-game concert featuring Kidz Bop Kids, who are known for singing “kid-friendly” versions of hit singles; a Wellness Expo in the Big Concourse; and for the first time ever, dogs will be allowed. Designated sections of the seating bowl will be available to owners and their dogs.

The MSPCA will have a booth at the event to showcase adoptable dogs and present information about rescuing pets from animal shelters. Visitors—including children—are encouraged to stop by the booth to meet the dogs and inquire about the adoption process. There will also be a photo station for dogs and their owners and the opportunity to participate in a pre-game dog parade around the warning track. That should be entertaining!

Tickets range from $5 (for bleacher seats) to $30 (for premium seating areas). Fans who wish to bring their dog can purchase tickets by phone only at 877- REDSOX-9 and need to bring a completed waiver that can be downloaded at

Did You Know?
Wally's World on Yawkey Way is open starting the bottom of the 1st inning through the middle of the 7th on certain Red Sox game days (weather permitting).  Kids of all ages can enjoy a speed pitch, beanbag toss, boardwalk games, kid-friendly concessions and other entertainment for free when they visit Wally’s World during any home game in July and August and any Saturday and Sunday home game day in September.

Another great family promotion at the park is called Celebrate Sundays (running the rest of the season). Each ticket package includes ice cream sundaes in the Champions Club from the second inning through the end of the seventh inning, plus a visit from Wally in the top of the 6th inning, as well as a balloon artist and face painter. Tickets range from $42-$66. It’s a pretty reasonable way to catch a game with your family.
