Dunn Field to host “Set the Night to Music” fireworks show
Elmira, N.Y. – For the first time ever, the annual “Set the Night to Music” fireworks event will be hosted by the Elmira Pioneers at Historic Dunn Field on Saturday, June 24. This annual event sets a phenomenal fireworks display to a musical ballad and is free to the public.
Gates will open for the event at 5:00 p.m. with seating in the grandstand based on a first-come first-serve basis. Seating will be available in the infield and outfield and the public is free to bring blankets and chairs to the event. Regular concessions items will be served at Dunn Field.
The event is expected to attract 15,000-plus fans, which would break the attendance record at Dunn Field and co-owner of the Elmira Pioneers, Robbie Nichols, could not be more excited, “This is just another historic event that we are so lucky to have come to Dunn Field. We know it will be a fantastic show and will be a great memory for all involved,” said Nichols.
Prior to the start of the fireworks show at 9:30, four-different local bands will be playing live on stage in center field beginning at 5:00 p.m.
In addition to the fireworks show, vendors will be present outside of the ballpark. Vendors will include many different products and categories ranging from different products, services, and home decor.
“When we purchased the team, we made a promise to keep Dunn Field as active as possible in addition the games it hosts. This is yet another huge event we are ecstatic about adding to our calendar. We want to bring in as many family and community activities as we can to Dunn Field so we could not be happier to be bringing such a phenomenal event like Set the Night to Music to Elmira and Dunn Field,” said Pioneers co-owner Don Lewis.
