San Bernardino, CA - Inland Empire fans and friends are invited to the ballpark for a special free screening of Polar Express Friday night, December 10th on the state of the art video board at Arrowhead Credit Union Park.
The holiday classic will start at 7 PM (gates open at 6:15 PM) and will be followed by a special holiday fireworks show as the 66ers, the City of San Bernardino and the San Bernardino Economic Development Agency celebrate the holiday season. Fans will also receive free cookies and hot chocolate at the event. All that is asked is that fans have fun, and, if they are able, bring an unwrapped toy for the Spark of Love Toy Drive which will distribute them to those in need.
"We are very excited about hosting this event," said Inland Empire 66ers Assistant General Manager Ryan English. "We hope this becomes an annual event where we can all share some time during the holiday season at our wonderful ballpark."
Fans can choose to sit on the field or in the stands to watch Polar Express on the largest video board in the California League. Only blankets will be allowed on the field, no exceptions will be made.
