The Durham Bulls return home to the DBAP on Saturday, June 29 to begin a stretch of six home games in seven days, featuring visits from the Columbus Clippers and Norfolk Tides. The Bulls' annual Independence Day Fireworks Extravaganza, two other fireworks shows and Swing for the Cure Night highlight the event calendar.
The Bulls kick off the homestand with the first of four games against the Columbus Clippers, Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, on Saturday, June 29 at 7:05pm. Sport Durst Automotive Group presents the annual Swing for the Cure Night, where the Bulls will wear special pink jerseys that will be available in an in-game auction to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Fans can also support the cause by purchasing a special $12 package that includes a game ticket, pink hat, pink bracelet and a $2 donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The package can be purchased online here using the offer code KOMEN or at the DBAP box office. Immediately following the game will be the first Saturday night fireworks show of the season.
On both Saturday and Sunday, young Bulls fans will be treated to a visit from Foofa of Nick Jr.'s wildly popular children's show "Yo Gabba Gabba!" thanks to the Goddard School. Foofa will be available for photos during both of the weekend games. Sunday's 5:05pm game, presented by Big Green Egg, will also feature Pepsi Kids Run the Bases postgame.
The series with Cleveland's top affiliate continues on Monday with a 7:05pm start. Tuesday's 7:05pm game is another AAA Membership Card Night. At every Tuesday home game in 2013, fans who show their AAA Membership Card can buy one Terrace Reserved ticket and get one, courtesy of AAA Carolinas. The Bulls then travel to Fort Mill, SC for a one-game road trip against the Charlotte Knights.
On Thursday, July 4, the Bulls welcome the division rival Norfolk Tides for a two game series. Immediately following the 6:05pm game on the 4th of July presented by PNC, the Bulls will host the City of Durham's official Independence Day Fireworks Extravaganza, the most dazzling pyrotechnics spectacular in the region.
The Bulls close out Independence Week with a 7:05pm game, presented by Carolina Packers, against the Baltimore Orioles' top affiliate on Friday, July 5. Another huge patriotic fireworks display will follow that game, with the Carolina Packers annual Hot Dog Eating Contest preceding fireworks.
