Tickets once again are limited for the event and are first come first served. Individuals will be allowed to purchase one ticket each for the event, which are expected to go very quickly.

“As we continue to look for ways to use the ballpark to safely bring our community together until our season can begin, we decided to host a fireworks show,” said Somerset Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry. “It’s always something our fans look forward to during our season. The fireworks nights have steadily been our most popular attraction around our games, and we wanted to bring a little of that fun to our community now in a time of need.”
The Drive-In Fireworks event is scheduled to be a 20-minute show set to music that fans will be able to download while sitting in their cars.
Spectators will be asked to stay in their vehicles at all times as per New Jersey Executive Order 142, with the exception of restroom needs. Portable restrooms are being provided by P&W Services. Patrons are asked to bring their own hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes with them.
