DAVENPORT, Iowa (MAY 22, 2013) – Families in the Quad Cities will have a unique way to celebrate Father's Day at Modern Woodmen Park on June 16, when the Quad Cities River Bandits host a pre-game catch in the outfield and their second annual Father's Day Cookout on the Sky Deck for the 5 p.m. Flat Screen Family Sunday game against the Burlington Bees.
The pre-game festivities kick off with catch in the outfield at 4 p.m. with the all-you-can-eat buffet on the Sky Deck to follow from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The fun-filled day will also feature giveaways and enter-to-win prizes for dad to take home. Individuals and families can now purchase ticket packages that include a game ticket and the cookout.
“This fun and affordable package offers families in the Quad Cities a special day to celebrate fathers and give Dad a memorable afternoon featuring a cookout and baseball game,” said River Bandits owner Dave Heller. “This event combines so much of what people in the Quad Cities can enjoy at Modern Woodmen Park – a gorgeous venue, great hospitality, terrific food, and affordable family-friendly entertainment as we help make Dad feel like a king this Father’s Day.”
Reservations must be made by Monday, June 10, for the package, which includes the cookout and admission to the River Bandits’ 5 p.m. game. Tickets are $20 for each adult and $10 for each child age 10 and younger. The cookout menu features all-you-can-eat hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, chips, cookies, lemonade and water, as well as a cash bar. Participants are welcome to enjoy the game from their seats or from the Sky Deck – a climate-controlled environment with large glass windows that offer spectacular views of the ballpark, downtown Davenport, the Centennial Bridge and the Mississippi River.
“Modern Woodmen Park is a fantastic year-round setting for special events, and the Father's Day Cookout is a terrific part of that lineup,” said General Manager Harold Craw. “The River Bandits are delighted to welcome families in the Quad Cities for another memorable Father’s Day celebration for the whole community..”
