2020 Firework Schedule
It includes five shows, new policies and a new Friday night promotion.
They will take place on June 19, July 3, July 17, July 24 and Aug 28. Each show is on a Friday and the first show will be shot by local sponsor, Memory Fireworks. In celebration of July 4 weekend, the annual “Red, White and BOOM” show on July 3, presented by Eide Ford Chrysler, is the largest show of the year and will be synched to patriotic music.
Each Scheels 7 Game Pack holder will have a firework game on their schedule.
To accommodate surrounding neighborhood requests, the Larks reduced the number of shows from 2019 and focused primarily on weekend evenings. The shows will take place before 11 p.m., last roughly six minutes and the team is removing salute fireworks which are particularly loud.
“Fireworks are our fans’ favorite promotion, no question,” said John Bollinger, Larks general manager. “While we want to continue creating those memories at the ballpark for thousands of families, we also wanted to implement a few policies that ensures we’re creating a positive experience for the entire Bismarck and Mandan community. I believe this new approach is a real win-win and we are thankful for the feedback from all involved who helped us put these together.”
The Larks sent out mailers to surrounding households to let them know the firework schedule in advance.
The five Larks games on Fridays without fireworks will be called “Fishing Fridays” presented by Mortiz Sport & Marine. Select fans in attendance will have the chance to win a 2020 Ranger boat priced up to $55,000. Select fans that submit photos of their favorite “catches” throughout the summer will also receive tickets to these games.
The Larks have not opened up single game ticket sales yet, but fans can get first access by signing up for the priority list. It’s free to join and there’s no purchase required.
