A few weeks ago we were invited to visit Fenway Park in Boston for a fun day of watching Baseball and Kidz Bop for the Futures at Fenway program. We got to see Boston’s Double A affiliate, the Portland Seadogs play against the Harrisburg Senators. The Seadogs won with a final score of 5-2.
We had great seats behind home plate and loaded up on hot dogs, peanuts, pretzels and cotton candy. It was a gorgeous day at a historic and cool ball field. This was the first time in the history of Fenway Park that they allowed dogs in the park, we even saw one man carrying his cat.
The game was followed by a Kidz Bop concert and then we spent a couple of hours walking up Newbury Street and at Faneuil Hall. It was really a great family day.
Keep your eye out for more Futures at Fenway days. It was a really great experience for us and we would go again. Futures at Fenway gives families a really affordable way to visit the park– ticket prices are just $5-30 for the event and all concessions are half off. That’s a huge savings! It also lets the Double A affiliate teams have a chance to play in the park as well. This year, dogs were invited (with a signed release/waiver at the entrance) to enjoy the event as well. We’ll be going next summer as a group with friends- won’t you join us?

What a great way to spend the day with family and friends. My grandsons would love this. I’m going to let my daughtersin on this and we can consider driving up to experience this event. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
what a fun article, thank you
I love that the game was followed by a Kidz Bop concert. That is something I bet the younger kids really enjoyed. Sounds like a great time and good memories made!

That looks like fun! It’s been SO long since I’ve been to a baseball game, and I definitely didn’t get to bring my dog with me!
Sounds like a really fun event! I hope I can make the next one.!.
That’s great that they also discount the concessions – honestly that part of going to a ball game is a big deterrent for me so I’d be happy to go to one of these Futures days… of course… hubby would have a heart attack (Yankees fan! LOL)

Hubby loves going to the ball parks. I”ve tried to convince him to take the kids to a game. A concert at the game would be really cool and a great way to finally get him to do so!

This sounds like a fantastic time! Can’t believe I’ve lived in New England my whole life and have yet to make it there! This needs to happen! 😉
I’m so envious! I want to go next time.
