Limited by guidelines associated with the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Los Angeles Dodgers are tapping into their creative side to help spread joy this winter with a safe and entertaining experience.
An inaugural Dodgers Holiday Festival is being held at Dodger Stadium, with the exhibit open most nights from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., November 27-December 24. Tickets went on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Dodgers.com/HolidayFestival.
Admission starts at $55 per car/ticket, but does vary based on desired date and time. No on-site sales are available and tickets must be purchased in advance. Fans are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior to the purchased slot in order to enter the queuing line.
The drive-thru features a holiday light show, LED video displays, fake snow, Dodgers elves and an appearance by Santa. It also includes interactive displays to celebrate the Dodgers’ World Series title and the holidays. Music will be provided by KOST 103.5.
The Holiday Festival is being staged in Dodger Stadium parking lots 10 and 11, with fans asked to enter through Downtown Gate E (right field pavilion) on Stadium Way. The drive-thru is expected to take an estimated 30 minutes, and fans are asked to remain in their car for the duration of the experience.
With that, attendees must remain in the vehicle at all times, there is not access to public restrooms or Dodger Stadium, and a face covering must be worn if a window is rolled down.
As part of the Holiday Festival, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) is coordinating contactless donations of new/gently used baseball or softball equipment to benefit Dodgers RBI, new toys to be donated to RaiseAChild and new pairs of socks which will be given to L.A. Family Housing.
Dodgers celebrate veterans
Unable to hold their annual Veterans Day batting practice at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers still celebrated current and retired military members through an array of initiatives last week.
Chief among them was completing a renovation of the All-Star Veterans Courtyard at the Volunteers of America Ballington Plaza Apartments in the Skid Row neighborhood of downtown L.A. It was an All-Star Legacy project that was part of the Dodgers being assigned the 2020 Midsummer Classic.
