Ballpark Boom



Get ready for another round of Columbus' most "explosive" Independence Day event: Ballpark Boom is back!!! On July 3, enjoy Red, White, & Boom from the comfort of Huntington Park. With entertainment McGuffey Lane and Phil Dirt and the Dozers, this is sure to be one of the premiere events in Columbus for years to come.


We will be serving up plenty of your ballpark favorites for your enjoyment, restrooms will be readily available. Experience this Columbus tradition in a whole new way! Tickets are just $5, and go on sale to the public on June 17. In partnership with COTA.

There will be a wide range of activities to keep the whole family entertained. For the first time ever, there will be a 200+ foot ZIP LINE at Huntington Park! Kids 14 and under (but at least 50 lbs.) can ride the zip line for $5. Adults can ride the zip line for $10 or 2 for $15. Each adult ticket comes with one free bean bag, drop the bean bag into the "Rusty Bucket" to win gift certificates courtesy of the Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern.

Along with the zip line, our bounce house, speed pitch, and basketball hoop will be free of charge to kids. Temporary tattoos, face painting, and caricatures will also be available for a nominal fee.

Gates open at 5:30 pm. McGuffey Lane will take the stage at 7 pm, Phil Dirt and the Dozers will take the stage at 9:00 pm.

At 9:45 pm, fans will get to go on the outfield to prepare for the fireworks show! After the fireworks show, Phil Dirt and the Dozers will play another 45-minute set.

Also, folks with a valid COTA 31-day pass, a DayPass validated on July 3, 2013, or a Park & Ride wristband will get into the ballpark FREE!
