Free fireworks, dollar drafts highlight Pelicans’ schedule

Buds, Booms, Bobbleheads, Bodyslams and Batman headline the Pelicans full promotional schedule for 2012.

Headlined by 18 Fireworks shows, the Pelicans also have special giveaways, appearances and the return of several popular daily specials.  The excitement begins April 6th with a Red Carpet event prior to the season opener against the Wilmington Blue Rocks at 7:05pm.

The season’s opening night comes complete with a red carpet for fans to walk on their way into Pelicans Ballpark.  The event is complete with spotlights, a photo staging area with a backdrop and postgame fireworks.

Fireworks light the Myrtle Beach sky three times in April alone, and twice on opening weekend.  The bursting lights fly 15 more times through the end of the year, including as part of the team’s July 3rd, Independence Eve extravaganza and following the final regular season game on September 3rd.

Other special promotions include Survivors weekend, honoring those that have overcome the fight against cancer, while also helping to raise awareness for fighting the various forms of the disease.  Starting Friday June 29th and running until Sunday July 1st, the Pelicans will draw attention to prostate cancer, breast cancer and all forms of cancer with blue, pink and lavender ribbons respectively.  The team will also wear commemorative jerseys that will be auctioned off to fans.

If you can’t make it out to the park for Survivor’s weekend, there are still more chances to go home with a Pelicans special edition uniform.  On July 19th the team celebrates the release of “The Dark Knight Rises,” the final in the most recent trilogy of Batman movies.  The Birds will don special ‘Dark Knight’ jersey tops for the game against the Wilmington Blue Rocks.  The Pelicans will also auction off red, white and blue game worn jerseys as part of Military Appreciation Night on May 27th.

The first weekend in August not only welcomes the defending Carolina League champion Frederick Keys to the park, but brings in two of the most fun promotions as well.  Everybody’s favorite all-American wrestler, ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan, appears on August 3rd (complete with a two-by-four).  The following night the first 1,000 fans receive an Elvis Andrus bobblehead.

There are also two Bark-at-the-Park nights in 2012, when man’s best friend is welcomed to the park to catch all the action.  Grab the leash and Scooby Snacks and bring your dog May 9th and September 1st.  The first of those nights also marks the celebration of the Pelicans bat-retrieving-dog Deuce.  It’s one of two big birthdays of the season.  Splash Pelican is inviting all his mascot friends to the park on April 16th for his very own birthday bash.

Pelicans daily promotions also return for 2012 in addition to all the specialty events.  Every Monday kids eat free.  All kids 12 and under receive a voucher for a free hot dog, chips and soda with paid admission.  Team Tuesday returns its poster series giveaway to the first 1,000 fans, courtesy of Sheriar Press.  Fans can also show their BI-LO BONUSCARD for a BOGO ticket offer.

Weiner Wednesdays feature $1 Hebrew National hot dogs all game long with Thirsty Thursday bringing $1 drink specials on Budweiser and Bud Light from 6 to 8pm.  Thirsty Thursday is courtesy Better Brands, Celebrations Nightlife and the Weekly Surge.

Additionally, Sunday games mean you can play catch on the field prior to first pitch and kids get the opportunity to run the bases postgame every night!
