CHARLESTON, SC – The Charleston RiverDogs will celebrate America’s Independence with three days of postgame fireworks festivities fromJuly 1-3 at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park with some help from BUSH’S Beans. Nothing says America’s birthday like a backyard cookout and the RiverDogs will get plenty of help from ‘Duke,’ the lovable golden retriever made famous by BUSH’S who will be making appearances all weekend.

In conjunction with BUSH’S Beans, the Charleston RiverDogs present a three-day long fireworks extravaganza, and fans can snap a picture with ‘Duke’ and see if he’ll finally ‘spill the beans’ about the secret family recipe. ‘Duke’ will also be visiting kids at the MUSC Children’s Hospital on Friday starting at 10am, before taking in all three days of baseball action.

“Nothing says Independence Day like fireworks and a baseball game,” said RiverDogs President and General Manager Dave Echols. “We’re excited to partner with BUSH’S to kick off the holiday weekend festivities with a bang, and Charlie T. RiverDog might have some competition on who will be the favorite dog at The Joe this weekend.”

It all starts on Friday, July 1 at 7pm as the RiverDogs begin the weekend with another Home Telecom postgame fireworks show on an ISHPI Red Shirt Friday. The RiverDogs will wear specialty red uniforms to honor our military, and all fans that wear red can save a buck at the gate with option to donate that dollar to the Wounded Warrior Corps. Adding in another summer staple, the RiverDogs will also celebrate National Watermelon Day at the ballpark.

On Saturday, July 2 at 6:05 pm celebrate America on “Red Neck Night” at Riley Park with another postgame fireworks showcase presented by BUSH’S Beans. Fans can join in on toilet bowl horseshoes and other redneck activities throughout the game. BUSH’S Beans will present the second straight night of fantastic fireworks as the RiverDogs take on the Augusta GreenJackets.

On Sunday, July 3 at 6:35pm show off your patriotism and your Charlestonian pride as the RiverDogs celebrate a Holy City Sunday and cap off the weekend with the third postgame fireworks spectacular presented by BUSH’S. The club will wear specialty uniforms that proudly display the "Holy City" namesake across their pinstriped tops with a new 'HC' emblem on the caps. It's also a Kids Club Sunday where all Kid's Club members get in free. In association with Charleston County Parks & Recreation, and Y102.5, Sunday features free parking and Lowcountry youth eat free, and enjoy pregame catch on the field.
