Flying Squirrels 2015 Promotion Schedule

flying squirrels fireworks schedule

The Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball team announced its 2015 promotion schedule this week. The season opens April 9.

Start saving your McDonald’s receipts because BOGO Mondays will be back. There’s no mention of the Wash Em Down Wednesday drink specials, but there will be a happy hour at Friday night games. It also doesn’t specify the return of free Sunday admission for Kids Club members, but that will hopefully be promoted later :) :

    The schedule proudly features 21 new and improved fireworks shows, 11 Free Shirt Fridays, 18 unique giveaways and 11 Kids Club Sunday’s with giveaways. Fireworks displays will accompany every Thursday and Saturday night game at the Diamond, while Opening Night on April 9th will feature the Squirrels first ever “Dueling Fireworks Extravaganza”(simultaneous fireworks shows to occur on the field and in the traditional location). New for 2015 is the Squirrels Free Shirt Fridays and Happy Hour for all 11 Friday night contests. A different Squirrels themed shirt will be given to the first 1,000 fans and Happy Hour drink specials will be available from 5:30-7:30PM. The team will of course pay homage to the Giants championship success with a World Series Replica Ring (April 28th), Hunter Strickland Bobblehead (July 7th) and a Joe Panik “Panic Button” (July 21st). Squirrels Tails Kids Club Sundays are once again a focal point with this year’s schedule featuring giveaways such as the Nutzy Pillowcase (April 12th), Nutzy Toothbrush Holder presented by The Children’s Hospital at VCU (May 24th), and the always popular Nutzy Cape Giveaway (August 2nd). A full and detailed promotional schedule can be found HERE.

    Fans are invited to bring a McDonald’s receipt to the box office for any of the Squirrels eight Monday games and receive a buy-one-get-one ticket offer.

Note that ticket prices will be increasing this year. General admission will cost $8 in advance and $9 at the gate, silver seats $10 in advance and $11 day of game, and field level is $12 in advance and $13 day of game.

50% Off Papa John’s Pizza

papa johns promo code
Got a dinner idea for you:

    Papa John’s: “Enjoy 50% off your pizza order for 3 Days only! Choose any size, any toppings, any quantity – enter promo code to reduce your total by 50% off the regular menu price.

    Use the promotion code Treat4you

    Offer expires 1/15/2015″

Since it doesn’t specify, I would expect it to be valid for carryout or delivery but only tested on carryout.

Remember that Papa John’s Groupon deal? (no longer available) Make sure to redeem your free pizza by 1/25 when it expires; you can use the 50% off promo in the same order if you need a second pizza like we do these days. A free large one-topping pizza + 50% off large cheese pizza = $6 paid for with Papa John’s gift card that was 20% off :)
