“The BID has been great supporters of ours from the start, including stepping up to support us during this past year when we did not have a season – which we appreciate immensely. Their team has worked diligently on creating a festive atmosphere downtown, and we have no doubt that these events will continue that along with all of the other great programs planned for the fall, including our Block Party in Court Square featuring Trailer Trash from 4:00 – 6:00 pm before our Opening Night.”
The opening night for the Springfield Thunderbirds is on Saturday, October 16 at 7:05 p.m. against the Hartford Wolf Pack.
