Preserve the Burg announces “Rays Baseball in the Park” for Game 5 of the ALDS

People watching a movie outdoors in the park

The Tampa Bay Rays have captured the imaginations of St. Pete and Tampa residents. The Trop was packed for games 3 and 4 of the ALDS, that saw the Rays surge past the Astros. The series is now tied 2-2 and heads back to Houston for the final game.

While many of us can’t be there in person, Burg residents are invited out for a special watch party in North Straub Park. That’s right, instead of screening a classic film under the stars, Preserve the Burg has opted to show Game 5 of the ALDS on the big screen.

Expect the usual Movies in the Park setup, including live music by George Pennington beginning at 5:30pm, and your favorite food vendors, including beer and wine. The Rays street team will be on site with prizes, DJ Kitty, and host Pat Donovan of 95.3 WDAE.

Will you be out watching the game?

It will be business as usual next Thursday. You can see a full Movies in the Park schedule here.
