Kenosha, Wis. – The Kenosha Kingfish are celebrating opening day early with brats and bobbleheads available at Kenosha and Mt. Pleasant Festival Foods locations. On Sunday, May 24th, the first 1,000 customers who purchase two or more pounds of Festival Foods Oktoberfest Bratwurst will receive a Zlipline Elvis Bobblehead for free. In conjunction with the bobblehead promotion, the Kingfish will unveil the 2015 fan-designed alternate jerseys at 2pm at Festival Foods in Kenosha.
The bobblehead giveaway will take place at Festival Foods located at 3207 80th Street in Kenosha and 5740 Washington Avenue in Mt.

Ballpark food and beverage will be provided for those who attend the jersey unveiling at 2pm. Kingfish mascot, King Elvis the First and Kingfish staff will be on hand throughout the day.
Hundreds of submissions were received when the Kingfish invited the public to design the alternate jersey for the 2015 season. A design by Nick Abate, a Christian Life School student, was selected and Kingfish General Manager, Jake McGhee is excited about the final product. “Our staff with the Kingfish pride ourselves on being creative and the winning jersey is sure to be one of the more creative looks in the entire Northwoods League. I am excited to catch an away game early this season to see the awesome jerseys on display,” McGhee said. This alternate jersey will be worn for most road games and some home games.
