It’s always a great day for a ball game! Even if your kids are young there is always something to do at Fenway Park! There are so many food options and places to check out even when you need a break from the game. Yesterday we were treated to a special event – a Red Sox Kid Nation Press Conference. The kids were excited to be able to ask Brock Holt questions and then we got a tour of some of the great spots to watch the game – hello green monster! What is great about Fenway and the Red Sox games is it really is a family event and very kid friendly. Wally’s Clubhouse is the perfect spot for kids to take a break from the game and is open each home game from the third through seventh innings. Is is located in the champions club and offers activities for kids of all ages including face paining, balloon artists, caricature artists and appearances from Wally! Plus it is cool in there so especially after yesterday’s heat it was great to take a break.
We also had an opportunity to view the rooftop garden called Fenway Farms. The Red Sox have created a rooftop garden behind the Gate that will grow vegetables and herbs throughout the baseball season. Presented by Stop & Shop (our favorite grocery store!) Dole, Sage Fruit, and Fenway Park concessionaire Aramark, the items grown will be used in food products prepared at the ballpark, including the restaurant in the EMC Club. As part of yesterday’s festivities we got to sample some Fenway cuisine with a small Fenway Food Festival and hear more about the yummy offerings (there is much more to eat than a fenway frank). The kids loved the grilled cheese and chicken fingers and I loved the pad thai inspired noodles. If you want to head to a game and learn more about what’s in store for kids at Fenway click here.
