The State College Spikes are ready to bring in the spring with the free family fun of SpikesFest 2017, presented by Mount Nittany Health and WTAJ-TV. SpikesFest 2017 will take place on Sunday, March 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Penn State Multi-Sport Facility, located across from the Bryce Jordan Center on the Penn State campus.
Admission is free for fans of all ages at SpikesFest 2017. Parking will be available in Lot 44, adjacent to the Multi-Sport Facility.
SpikesFest 2017 will bring all of the fun and excitement of a Spikes home game indoors with a variety of activities, including inflatable games and mascot appearances. The carnival event also features additional kids' games, performances by local entertainment groups, and much more.
The annual event will also feature a silent auction of sports memorabilia, autographed items and Spikes prize packages, along with a number of affordable items from local sponsors and attractions. Proceeds from the auction will benefit The Mount Nittany Health Foundation.
A full list of items up for bids in the auction, as well as a complete list of SpikesFest activities, will be available at StateCollegeSpikes.com once finalized.
Plus, fans will be afforded the opportunity to purchase ticket packages for the 2017 Spikes home schedule, which begins on Monday, June 19. The Spikes, Short-Season Single-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, will defend their New York-Penn League championship over 38 nights of fun, affordable family entertainment through September 7.
