Coolers are permitted (no glass containers and no alcohol, please), and the stadium gates open at 6 p.m. A variety of food vendors will also be on hand at the stadium entrance. Live music from the band Stranger begins at 8:30 p.m., and the fireworks show will light up the sky at 10 p.m., synchronized to music provided by Jack FM 92.9.
