The Montgomery Biscuits began their four-day schedule of promotional announcements on Tuesday by announcing their Day of Week promotions for the 2018 season, including all MAX Fireworks dates.
2018 will feature 25 MAX Fireworks shows, including the MAX Capital City Classic on March 27th, Opening Night on April 5th, and the Fourth of July celebration. In addition to those special nights, every Friday and Saturday Biscuits home game in 2018 will feature MAX Fireworks. The 25 MAX Fireworks shows are the most in the Biscuits 15 year history, and fans can expect new shows, new designs, and new styles of fireworks throughout the entire 2018 season.
The Biscuits will also feature new and returning promotions during every other day of the week, giving fans consistency on a week by week basis. Two new membership clubs highlight Sunday and Monday games. Any child aged 12 and under can join the Biscuits "Kids Club" for free on the Biscuits website or at the stadium. With this membership, they will receive FREE admission to all Sunday games during the 2018 season, as well as other special perks including giveaway items during certain games. Sunday games will also continue to be "Bark in the Park" in 2018, with dogs being allowed in the stadium with their families.
Monday games will feature special benefits for the "Golden Biscuits" membership club, a special ticket package for fans aged 55 and older. Starting at $65, membership to the "Golden Biscuits" includes a ticket to all 9 Monday night games, a custom "Golden Biscuits" t-shirt and hat, special discounts in the Biscuit Basket retail store, and more. During Monday games, special promotions will occur to recognize and create fun memories for members of the "Golden Biscuits" club.
Tuesday games will be specially designed for the "foodies" in the River Region, with special food-themed promotions occurring all season long. In addition to the fan-favorite "Dollar Dog Tuesdays" returning which feature hot dogs on sale for $1, new special "Food Fests" will take place highlighting special food items throughout the ballpark. Each Tuesday, the Biscuits culinary team will create special menu items highlighting items from Bar-B-Q, to southern fried foods, to (of course) biscuits!
Wednesday games will continue to focus on those who serve, as the popular "Military Wednesday" promotions will continue to take place. During Wednesday games, any active duty, veteran, or retired military personnel will receive special ticket, food, and drink discounts. Certain Wednesday games will feature unique giveaways designed for members of the military and their families. Special members of the military will also be honored prior to every Wednesday game.
"Thirsty Thursdays" will also return for 2018, but with a stylish twist. The popular promotion featuring $2 drink specials will include a custom t-shirt giveaway to the first 1,000 fans aged 15 and older at every Thursday night game. Each Thursday game will feature a different promotional theme and a shirt design that matches that night's theme. Some examples of themed Thursday games and t-shirt designs will include Mardi Gras Night, Beach Night, Country Music Night, and Nurses Appreciation Night.
"To celebrate the 15th season of Biscuits Baseball, we have worked very hard to create the most elaborate promotional schedule yet," said Biscuits Chief Operating Officer, Brendon Porter. "Fans should plan on more MAX Fireworks, more giveaways, more appearances, and more fun. There is something for everyone to enjoy and we look forward to starting the season off with a BANG on April 5th, just a short 79 days away!"
