The Sugar Land Skeeters hosted their annual Fan Fest last Saturday, giving fans the chance to come to Constellation Field to meet the team, take batting practice, shop the garage sale and enjoy some fun and games.
On May 6, the Skeeters will once again open the ballpark for your enjoyment as the team partners with the Fort Bend Star to present the inaugural Family Fun day. The free event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature several fun activities for children along with vendors with information about a variety of topics, including summer camps, schools, hospitals, churches, vacation Bible schools, music schools, retailers, doctors, dentists and so much more.
This is a day that will showcase the best of summer events and activities in the greater Fort Bend County area. It will be like a one-stop-shopping event for parents to learn about things they can do for and with their children over the summer.
Kids can participate in many activities throughout the day. Activities include having the photo taken with Swatson, the Skeeters mascot, visiting with and getting autographs from Skeeters players, playing on the Skeeters playground and bounce houses, walking around the Skeeters outfield and enjoying food purchased from the Skeeters food kiosks.
In addition, participants will receive a coupon for a discount ticket to a Skeeters baseball game. They can even redeem it for the game that night against the New Britain Bees. The Skeeters begin defense of their first Atlantic League of Professional Baseball championship on April 20.
