The Harrisburg Senators begin their 2018 promotional schedule reveal with their announcement of 22 firework shows in 2018, the most firework shows the Senators have ever had in a single season. The 22 shows are up from 15 last year and 13 in 2016. Nearly a third of the Senators home games have a postgame firework show.
"We have gotten such remarkable feedback on the quality of our fireworks shows over the last couple of years," said Kevin Kulp, Senators team president. "I have seen lots of fireworks shows at ballparks over the years and these truly are among the best. So why not give our fans more of what they love? We've always been committed to trying new things and doing our best to figure out what our fans are wanting out of their experience of coming to FNB Field. So, it was really a matter of listening to our fans and giving them what they were asking for. We're excited about it."
Firework shows take place after all Thursday and Friday night games, and several other dates. Each Firework show in 2018 will be themed in some way with music and in most cases, matching the theme of the game. The complete lineup is listed below.
