All of the weekly promotions are set for another go-round in Charleston's downtown facility this summer, but with a few twists, including postgame fireworks shows shifting from Friday to Saturday evenings. Meanwhile, the Power's promotional slate is highlighted by the fifth edition of BrewFest CharlieWest, the team's second annual Pride Night and African American Heritage Night, a spectacular Independence Celebration, Faith and Family Night, and Nick Jr. Night featuring a special character appearance!
The club's full giveaway series will be debuted next week.
