The Tides released the promotional schedule via press release on Thursday.

There are tons of cool and unique promotions set from the Tides this year, including a specific night for divisions of the military:
  • Armed Forces Night - May 20
  • Marine Corps Night - June 17
  • Coast Guard Night - August 4
  • Navy Night - August 5
In addition, the Tides' also announced that Mondays will be Military Mondays. I applaud the Tides for having so many Armed Forces' nights and promotions because our Military deserves all the appreciation we can give.

Other day-related promotions this year include Wind Down Wednesdays, Thursday Night Happy Hour and Sunday Fundays.

Other specific promotions on tap this year at Harbor Park include two Bark in the Park dates (May 7 and August 6) where you can bring your pup to the game. There will also be eight Businessperson Specials, two Turn-Back-The Clock Nights (June 27 and August 15), and Star Wars Night (June 3).

There will also be some new promotions this year, including one that I am sure will be quite popular. The Tides will have $1 nachos on Cinco De Mayo on May 5, which oh by the way, falls on a Friday this year.

Also new to the schedule is a fleece blanket giveaway (April 28), a Triton bobblehead giveaway (July 28) and a Harbor Park snow globe giveaway (July 14).

There will also be 12 postgame fireworks shows this year as well.

Single game tickets for the 2017 season will go on sale on March 11, and be sure to check out the press release for this season's ticket prices.

It's shaping up to be a fun year at Harbor Park and the promotion schedule is on point, so be sure to check out the Tides this year if you get the chance.
