Oakland A's Fireworks & Light Shows - 510 Families

Oakland A’s Fireworks & Light Shows

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 about extra special baseball games with fireworks and dazzling musical drone shows this season.

Thank you to our sponsor, Oakland Athletics. We love to cheer them on AND watch the extra special shows afterward.

Five Oakland A’s baseball games this summer offer a fireworks display or light show 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.

Here is the A’s Fireworks & Drone Light Show game schedule for 2023:

Both fireworks and drone shows include synchronized music and jaw-dropping lights and spectacle after specific Friday and Saturday evening games. Your family can remain in their seats or move to the ball field for a special vantage point.

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

  • The fireworks require closing the BART footbridge from 10 minutes into the 9th inning until after the show.
  • The fireworks are LOUD, exciting, and right over the outfield. Sensitive kids might want ear protection. (These hearing-protection muffs are about $15)
  • Drone Light Shows can turn into any image or word related to the night’s theme and tend to be quieter
