Promotional Calendar Part One: Fireworks Extravaganzas! 
RICHMOND, VA - The Richmond Flying Squirrels, Double-A affiliate of the 2012 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, begin a week-long unveiling of their 2013 Promotional Calendar with the announcement of 24 Fireworks Extravaganzas to take place at The Diamond during the 2013 regular season. The slate of Fireworks shows includes Opening Night 2013 on April 4th, and three consecutive displays to celebrate Independence Day (July 4th - July 6th). The highly-popular Thursday Night Fireworks Series will return for 2013, and will be joined by the newly-created Saturday Night Fireworks Series.

Each of the Flying Squirrels' 10 Thursday home games will feature a Fireworks display, as will 10 of the 11 Saturday home games. The lone Saturday game without Fireworks (May 18th) will possibly be even more explosive however, with the return of the Human Cannonball to Richmond. The Squirrels will also host four shows on Friday nights, and the entirety of the 24-game Fireworks calendar will take place Thursday-Saturday.

"We always strive to respond to what fans want, and give them as much of it as possible," said Flying Squirrels' Vice President & COO Todd "Parney" Parnell. "Fireworks continue to be one of our most popular draws, so we have beefed up the number of the shows to match that enthusiasm from our fans."
