FRISCO, Texas (June 10, 2019) - Now that school is out, kids and their families have even more reason to enjoy summer nights at Dr Pepper Ballpark, especially with all the family fun on tap this week.


The kid-themed fun starts Wednesday with Splash Day, presented by Dippin' Dots. The 12:05 game features an assortment of inflatable water attractions set up around the ballpark, a perfect way for kids to beat the heat while enjoying the ballgame.


On Thursday, bring the family dog to the ballpark for the final Bark in the Park of the season, presented by Legacy Veterinary Hospital. During the event, the Street Dog Project will be on hand running a pet adoption event.


Saturday's game is the annual Scout Night and is also Space Night in honor of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. As part of Space Night, there will be an interactive educational station for kids to learn more about space exploration.


The big week at the ballpark concludes Sunday with Crayola Experience Plano Night, during which the first 500 kids 12 & younger will receive a free jersey that they can color themselves. It's also the latest Kids Sunday Funday, which features pregame catch on the field and free kids tickets for members of the Riders Kids Club.


Another notable feature of the homestand is the first of three Strikeout Cancer Nights, presented by UT Southwestern Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center Friday at 7:05.
