“Our opening night on Oct. 16th is approaching quickly, and we couldn’t think of a better way to start activating our brand downtown than by partnering with the Business Improvement District on this unique weekly event,” said Springfield Thunderbird’s President, Nathan Costa. “The BID has been great supporters of ours from the start, including stepping up to support us during this past year when we did not have a season – which we appreciate immensely. Their team has worked diligently on creating a festive atmosphere downtown, and we have no doubt that these events will continue that along with all of the other great program planned for the fall, including our Block Party in Court Square featuring Trailer Trash from 4:00 – 6:00 pm before our Opening

NOSH and Sweet Idea’s Café will be open serving dinner and drinks. Participants can sign up beforehand by visiting springfielddowntown.com or at the event.

Thank you to the Springfield Thunderbird’s for being the presenting sponsor of this event as well as Blue Haus Group for co-hosting the event.
