Give your family something to cheer about by taking them out to a ball game this summer. Here are 7 tips to ensure you and your kids have an unforgettable day.
Get ready for the dramatic first glimpse at Angel Stadium—and be sure to capture your child’s reactions on camera. Pause at the main entrance, where giant baseball bats and red caps make the experience larger-than-life. Snap a photo here, or at one of the iconic bronze statues, including the team’s founder Gene Autry.
Start a new family tradition by spending your Sundays at Angel Stadium. The Family Sunday Kid Zone in the Gate 5 courtyard has games, activities and face painting for all, and every Sunday home game until September, kids ages 3–13 can stay after the action's over and run the bases like a big leaguer. Learn more about theme nights, giveaways and events for the whole family here.
Enjoy a holiday-themed weekend filled with Christmas cheer. The stadium will be filled with activities for all, including photo opportunities with Santa and a reindeer petting area. On Friday, June 28, the first 30,000 fans will receive a Christmas stocking and on Saturday, June 29, fans of all ages can enjoy a themed fireworks show. Go to angels.com/promotions for a complete list of theme nights, giveaways and family-friendly events.
With kids in tow, there’s a good chance you won’t be seated for all nine innings. One minute someone is hungry, the next, there’s a bathroom emergency. And sometimes you’ll just want to stretch your legs and explore the buzz of the stadium. Be prepared for these impromptu excursions from the game with aisle seats! You’ll avoid the chaos of trying to pass other people, and you can do so with the Angels’ handy stadium map.
Sure, your kids are singing, “Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks,” but the song doesn’t mention all the other amazing food options at Angel Stadium. With helmet nachos and chili cheese fries, just to name a few, you’ll find all the classic baseball food offerings and then some. For a creative twist, try the Change Up Kitchen for player-inspired menus and enjoy your grub at the Center Field Picnic Area, the Outdoor Courtyard—or, of course, right at your seat.
You’ll need something tangible to remember your fun times at Angel Stadium. Explore the Team Store right behind Home Plate, or one of the many other merchandise locations to shop and play. Whether you’re looking to splurge on a jersey, save on a t-shirt in the Family Value section or buy your own rally monkey, you’ll find souvenirs for the whole family.
