The Charlotte Knights announced a summer packed with celebrities, fireworks, giveaways and a 30th birthday celebration for Homer the Dragon!

The Knights home opener is scheduled to kick off April 4th at 7:04 p.m. against the Durham Bulls. That opening weekend will include the first Friday night fireworks show of the season.

Bobble head collectors can expect multiple opportunities to score big on new inventory during the season with a Homer the Dragon, Good Knight Charlie, Eloy Jimenez, and Matt Parrott “Parrott Head” bobble heads.

Some special pop culture nights are scheduled as well – such as a ‘Parks and Recreation’ tribute night featuring cast member Alison Becker, who played Shauna Malwae-Tweep on the show. Tom Guiry (Smalls) from the popular baseball movie The Sandlot will head out to the ball game as well!
