4/19/17: Fun For Families At Fenway Park

The Red Sox have been doing an amazing job making the Fenway Park experience more family friendly.  Each year I see huge improvements to make it easier for families to enjoy a game.  Starting with Wally's Clubhouse to Gate K for kids!  This year as a Red Sox Parent I was able to go to Fenway and learn more about the improvements this year and I also attended the Little League Opening Day event and had a blast!  Plus read on and see how you can score a free Red Sox game ticket for your child!
A Virtual Reality Batting Cage was added to the Kids Concourse.  Evan got to try it out and loved it.

Last year the Virtual Reality Dugout was added and this year there is new content.
I was also impressed with the new selection of foods.  Aramark, Fenway Park’s concessionaire has a great lineup this year of food.  As someone on a diet I was excited to see a new build-your-own-salad and fruit bar in the lower level featuring select produce from Fenway Farms, and new kids meals will be served in the Kids Concourse area in Wally and Tessie commemorative brown lunch bags.  The kids meals offer a choice of a mini kids hot dog, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or a grilled cheese, and are served with Lay’s chips and a mini Poland Spring water.
I sampled the salad and Evan had the hot dog kids meal.  A big hit is also the Wally ice cream.
Plus Aramark will continue its test kitchen concept by introducing monthly rotating items at a stand in the Big Concourse located across from the Champions Club.  Featured items for the month of April include lobster melts with steamed lobster, melted Muenster cheese, and sliced tomatoes; or surf and turf kebabs with skewered shrimp and/or marinated steak tips.  Plus lots of fun options for snacks including cotton candy and Cheetos popcorn!
We got to check out some beautiful views of Fenway from the Green Monster.
Evan loved the view.
Love this view too.
We got to check out a new LEGO model of David Ortiz!
We got to enjoy a game too!

Did you know if you sign your children up for the Free Kid Nation Rookie program they get a free game ticket?  Sign up now here!
There are also so many cool events for kids.  Today was Little League Opening Day at the park and we got to enjoy so much fun in the Kids Concourse and on the field.  This is a wonderful free event!
We got to walk around Fenway and also check out the field up close.
 The kids loved being able to walk around on the warning track.
There has also been a Dugout Expansion.  The depth of both the Home and Visitor’s dugouts has been increased by moving the front rail of the dugouts forward 3 feet, providing for better circulation, improved sight lines from bench seating areas, and additional space for storage of bats and helmets.  We got to check out both the home and visitor's dugouts today when we were at Little League Opening Day at the park!
We even got to check out the Red Sox Trophies.
Lauren had a caricature done.  There were also balloon animals being made, a magician, clown, and face painting.
We got to see Wally and Tessie!
Kids could also throw and bat.
There is so much to do and see now at Fenway Park and as a Red Sox Parent I will be bringing you all the latest news!
Make sure to head to Fenway Park this season!
