RENO, Nev. (KOLO) — No Aceball on July 4 means a different kind of fun at Greater Nevada Field. The Aces staff call it the greatest spectacle the stadium has ever seen.
“We believe our show is the longest and largest in terms of hull size used,” said club chief operating officer Doug Raftery.
With plenty of fireworks planned across Northern Nevada, the Aces are throwing a one-of-a-kind party — which of course ends with a fireworks display.
Sunday’s celebration will have a similar gaming feel, but without the sporting dynamic. All 400 tickets to the field are sold out, but there will be face paint, balloon tornadoes and a magician.
Raftery says the plans are centered around family fun.
“We’ll have a pie contest, a three-legged race, we’ll have a dizzying bat race. All of this will happen on the pitch.
Perhaps one of the biggest attractions will be three country music acts – including an hour-long set from Sparks native Patrice Luciano.
“I think they can expect us to set the stage on fire a bit,” she said of her plans.
His career took off two years ago after playing at Silver Legacy and the Rib Cook-Off.
“And after the Rib Cook-Off, they took me to Talladega. So after Talladega, I went to Nashville and I got to play Tin Roof and do all these things. Then I came back and we sold Colt Ford,” Luciano said of his resume.
Performing on Independence Day is a dream come true for Luciano, who is also a veteran.
There are still tickets left in the seat bowl.
