If you and your family can stay up late, what better way to celebrate than with an outing to a baseball game followed by a fireworks show?! Read on for details!
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).
Here is the A’s Fireworks game schedule for 2019:
- Friday, May 10 vs. Cleveland Indians: East Bay Hip-Hop Fireworks presented by Cal State East Bay on 510 Day
- Friday, June 14 vs. Seattle Mariners: Netflix: Stranger Things Fireworks
- Wednesday, July 3 vs. Minnesota Twins: Patriotic Fireworks presented by Chevrolet
- Saturday, July 27 vs. Texas Rangers: Pixar Fireworks presented by Delta Dental
- Friday, August 16 vs. Houston Astros: K-Pop Fireworks presented by Ray Morgan Company
- Saturday, September 7 vs. Detroit Tigers: Star Wars™ Fireworks presented by Chevron
- Saturday, September 21 vs. Texas Rangers: Theme TBD presented by Lagunitas
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)
