CHS Field to host 'Friday Night Films & Fireworks' event July 3

The St. Paul Saints' CHS Field will be opening its gates to the public with its first "Friday Night Films & Fireworks" series event. 

On July 3, the Saints will air the movie, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," followed by a red, white and blue celebration of fireworks to light up the sky, according to a press release.

The gates of the field will open at 7 p.m. and the movie will start at 8 p.m.

Tickets cost $15 and the ballpark will utilize four distinct and socially distanced areas for fans. Groups may reserve multiple areas on the field but must pay for a minimum of four per space.

There are four areas for the public to be seated in — Area A, B, C, and D. Area D is the outdoor seating in the Securian Financial Club with a maximum capacity of 125. Tickets for this area is $50 and come with a pre-packaged meal and all you can drink soda, water, select beers and wine.

“We’re excited to safely welcome fans to CHS Field to kick off the Fourth of July Weekend,” said Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Derek Sharrer. “From Nopening Day, to the Pop-Up Café, to our youth baseball camps, our goal this summer is to keep this beautiful ballpark active and engaged with our community prior to our team’s return to playing home games at CHS Field. Over the last few years we’ve hosted memorable Fourth of July events and we wanted to continue that tradition.”

Tickets for the movie and fireworks show can be purchased either online, over the phone by calling 651-644-3517, or by visiting the Saints box office Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
