From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the 9th Fireworks Friday of the 2013 season, presented by PNC Bank. The fireworks show will begin approximately 15 minutes after the conclusion of tonight’s game and last for approximately 15 minutes. Tonight’s soundtrack is a “Tribute to Jerry”, in honor of the late Jerry Garcia who would have celebrated his 71st birthday yesterday, and as always, will feature Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks. Gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 5:10PM for Season Ticket Holders and 5:40PM for the general public. However, those gate opening times may be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code if the crowd size outside the gates dictates it so.
During pregame ceremonies tonight we will have the inaugural “I Do’s on the Diamond” at Great American Ball Park. Beginning at approximately 6:35PM we will welcome 16 couples who will be saying their vows for the first time, along with 5 couples who will be renewing their vows as husband and wife. Reverend Nicholas St. Pierre will officiate tonight’s nuptials in a ceremony that is expected to last approximately 15 minutes. Following the on-field ceremony the couples and their guests will enjoy a reception in the Riverfront Club.
