Seven Oakland A’s baseball games this summer offer a fireworks display after the final inning. Fans can move down to the outfield (bring your own blanket!) to sit on the grass and watch the show or stay in their seats — you pick.

Fireworks start approximately 45 minutes after the game ends. Each fireworks show has a theme which dictates the music — ranging from STAR WARS to Pixar Night (count me in!). I was there on the 5.10 show which was a hip hop celebration of Oakland and the (510).

What parents need to know about taking kids to see baseball fireworks shows:

  • The fireworks require closing the BART footbridge from 10 minutes into the 9th inning until after the show.  For reference, the 5.10 12-inning game ended at 10:20 pm. Fireworks started at 11 pm. We got to BART at 11:35.
  • The fireworks are LOUD, exciting, and right over the outfield. Sensitive kids might want ear protection. (These hearing-protection muffs are about $15)
