10 Things Families Will Love About Storm Chasers Games In 2018

I’m very excited to announce that I’m partnering with Omaha Storm Chasers this year! If you haven’t been to a game, this is the year to plan a family outing. The Storm Chasers are celebrating their 50th season, and they have a ton planned that appeals to families.

A ballgame at Werner Park is always a family-friendly experience – I’ve written about taking kids to a Storm Chasers game before. But this year, they’ve added some extras for the big anniversary. I’ve combed though all of their promotions to share my favorite things about the season.

Here are 10 things families are going to love about Storm Chasers Games this year:

Celebrating the Decades

From music to flashback jerseys, the Storm Chasers will celebrate a decade each month of the season. Check the calendar for nights where there are bobble head giveaways connected to each decade, Flashback Fridays, and beer specials by the decade.

April – 2011-Present, Storm Chasers

May – 2000-2010, Spikes/Royals

June – 1990-1999, Royals/Spikes

July – 1980-1989, Royals

August – 1969-1979, Royals

50th Game of the 50th Season

The big game falls on July 20, a Friday night. So, in addition to the 1985 Royals Flashback Jersey, fans get to enjoy Friday Fireworks.

Theme Nights

These are an annual favorite, and if you have Star Wars or princess fans in your house, there’s a good chance you’ve gone to one of these games. The theme nights that stand out to me include Star Wars Night on May 4 (get it? May the Fourth be with you.), Superhero Night on June 30, and Daddy-Daughter Night on July 13 (rescheduled to Aug. 4).

Tip: There are fireworks following the games on Star Wars Night and Daddy-Daughter Night.

Fun Storm Chasers Jerseys

In addition to five flashback jerseys that tie into the jerseys I just mentioned, there are other designs you’ll see throughout the season. Many will be auctioned off to benefit charities.

Star Wars fan? Go to the May 4th (get it?) game to see the Star Wars X-Wing Pilot Jersey presented by ParentSavvy.com. It’s going to be auctioned off. There are 10 special jerseys worn this season, and I think I have my eye on the look out for the Omaha Runzas Jersey presented by…guess. It’s presented by Runza, and you’ll see it on the diamond and then auction off on June 9.

Meet The Greats

Omaha Storm Chasers have 11 alumni appearing at games throughout the 2018 season. Photo courtesy Omaha Storm Chasers

Fifty years is a lot of years to commemorate, and a lot of players to recognize. If your kid loves meeting baseball players, plan for these games:

May 5 – Mike Sweeney (1996-97, 2002-03, 06)

May 25 or 26 – Angel Berroa (2002, 07-08)

June 22 – Harold Reynolds (1995)

June 24 – Chris Hatcher (1997-98, 2002), Dwayne Hosey (1994-95), Dave Ullery (2001-04) & Ken Harvey (2002, 05)

July 20 – Jack McKeon (1969-71), Bill Beck & Bob Quinn

Aug. 24 – Frank White (1973)

Friday Fireworks

Friday nights home games for the Storm Chasers mean fireworks. Photo courtesy Omaha Storm Chasers

All season long, if the home game falls on a Friday night, there will be fireworks following the game. There are 11 Friday nights in the schedule, and the first one is April 6.

Of course, they aren’t limiting the fireworks to just Friday nights this year. The super popular Independence Day games end with fireworks (those two nights are on July 2 and 3).

There are also fireworks following the game on Sunday, May 27, and Saturday, July 21.

 

Bark in the Park

If your kids are of the four-legged variety, take note of these dates: April 18, June 6, Aug. 1, Aug. 15 and Aug. 29. You can bring your dog to the game and sit on the berm on Bark in the Park games (just be sure to pre-register).

Tip: Bark at the Park nights happen to coincide with Weiner Wednesdays…so cheap dinners for all! Full-sized hot dogs are 25 cents each at Wednesday evening home games.

First 50 Kids Promotion

Attending the Storm Chasers game as a family was included in my list of 25 things to do under $25 in Omaha. Prices are low to begin with but you can save even more money on game day with the First 50 Kids promotion. The first 50 kids (10 years and under) to arrive at the Werner Park Ticket Office on day of game are able to purchase McDonald’s Berm tickets for just $1, all season-long, regardless of game promotion. The berm is that grassy seating area. Details here.

Family FunDays

If your kid is too young to stay up late for evening games, the Sunday afternoon home games should be on your radar. Known as Family FunDays, there are some great opportunities for kids to be out on the field. Check the schedule for the dates the can run the bases or play catch on the field. Family FunDays also always have clowns and balloon artists.

Family Fun Zone

My kids could spend the entire game here if I let them. The Centris Family Fun Zone at Werner Park is an extra fee, but totally worth it. Photo courtesy Omaha Storm Chasers

If you’re a regular at Storm Chaser games, and you have kids, chances are, you’ve been to the Centris Family Fun Zone. This was definitely my kids’ favorite part of Werner Park in their young days – I’m curious to see if it still is when we go this season. You don’t get to watch much baseball from there, though.

The Family Fun Zone is a large area behind left field with inflatables, jungle gym, and a carousel. It does cost $6 for kids ages 3+ to enter if you don’t have a Centris ATM, Visa Credit or Debit card.

There’s also a combo pass option for $7, which includes playing in the fun zone and miniature golf for $7.

Wait. There’s more!

See the full calendar of promotions here. Since this list is limited to just 10 things you’ll love, I couldn’t fit in all the concerts, giveaways, and more planned.

And before I end this, here’s my money-saving tip: If you want FREE parking, drive past all the signs for the paid lots until you reach the dirt lot on the north side of the stadium (take it with a grain of salt that it’s still free since I haven’t been to a game in years).

If you go

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE In Omaha {Giveaway}

The No. 1 PBS Kids TV series, “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” has been made into a popular musical, and the tour has two shows in Omaha. “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE: King For A Day!” will be at the Orpheum Theater on Saturday, March 31, at 2 and 6 p.m.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Mills Entertainment, producer of the show “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE: King For A Day!” and tickets for the giveaway are provided by Mills Entertainment. 

I don’t know about you guys, but my kids watched a whole lot of Daniel Tiger when they were preschoolers. If you’ve never seen it, “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” builds off of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” and uses the same musical strategies to teach socio-emotional lessons to kids ages 2 to 4.

What’s new with Daniel Tiger this year

This isn’t the first time “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE” has been to Omaha (it’s been touring for three years), so this year, it’s an all-new production. Same beloved characters and trolley, new adventure in Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

In “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE: King For A Day!,” Daniel learns just what it takes to be King. And it wouldn’t be Daniel Tiger if there weren’t great lessons for kids, so through music and magical moments, kids learn the valuable lessons of kindness, helping others, and being a friend.

If you’re taking the kids, make a date of it! Here are my favorite places for post-theater treats in Omaha.

If you go

“Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE: King For A Day!”

When: March 31, 2 and 6 p.m.

Where: Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St.

Cost: Tickets start at $30.25 (plus applicable service fees) and are available online at ticketomaha.com, 402-345- 0606, or at the box office at the Holland Performing Arts Center, 1200 Douglas St. (get the tickets at the box office to avoid paying some of those fees)

Giveaway

I’m so excited about this giveaway! One lucky winner will receive FOUR tickets to the 6 p.m. performance of “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE: King For A Day!” at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha on March 31. Giveaway ends March 25, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Must be 18 or older to enter. Tickets have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for a different show or showtime.

Update: The giveaway has ended. Congrats to Lisa T. for winning the giveaway!

Never heard of Siro-A?

Surely you’ve heard of “America’s Got Talent.”

Siro-A Tour launch at the Leicester Square Theatre, London. Siro-A have been billed as “Japan’s answer to the Blue Man Group” and their revolutionary mix of visual effects, mime, dance, comedy, music, magic, puppetry and audience participation certainly lives up to that reputation. Photo courtesy Paul Brown

Omaha Performing Arts is bringing them to Omaha to perform at the Orpheum Theater on March 8.

So, this video, guys. Looks incredible, right? It’s got kind of a Blue Man Group vibe but more modern. My kids are going to love this show.

Siro-A fuses groundbreaking visual effects with puppetry, mime, and a huge dash of techno music for an entertaining show that the judge Mel B described as “so exciting, jam-packed full of creativity.”

PAW Patrol Live! In Omaha {Giveaway}

My daughter’s been in about a year-long love affair with “PAW Patrol,” and all of her friends too. So you bet when I heard “PAW Patrol LIVE! Race to the Rescue” was coming to Omaha, I knew it was going to be a big deal.

“PAW Patrol Live!” is at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha Jan. 12 and 13, 2018. © 2016 Spin Master PAW Productions Inc. All Rights Reserved. © 2016 Viacom.

Disclosure: I received complimentary tickets to the show, as well as vouchers to giveaway, in exchange for sharing all the fun details.

The show, featuring Marshall, Chase, Ryder, and the whole gang, will be at the Orpheum Theater Jan. 12-13, 2018.

Keep reading to find out how you can win FOUR tickets to the show!

What’s it about

It’s the day of the Great Adventure Bay Race between Adventure Bay’s Mayor Goodway and Foggy Bottom’s Mayor Humdinger, but Mayor Goodway is nowhere to be found. PAW Patrol to the rescue! Ryder summons Marshall, Chase, Skye, Rubble, Rocky, Zuma and Everest to rescue Mayor Goodway and to run the race in her place.

There is some audience participating in “PAW Patrol Live!” © 2016 Spin Master PAW Productions Inc. All Rights Reserved. © 2016 Viacom.

This is, indeed, a live show. It’s based off the animated show, but it should be a new experience watching the characters on stage. According to the Ticket Omaha website for the show, “The performance features up-tempo music and special interactive video that allows the audience to participate via interviews, solve clues with the Pups, follow Mayor Goodway and much more.”
