Everyone that attends will enjoy the evening with beverages, demos from the Police K-9 unit and emergency vehicles on display plus an exciting rivalry unfolding before your very eyes on the field.  All the fun will take place on Thursday, August 24 starting at 5:00 at the historic Wade Stadium.

There will be a bouncy house, emergency vehicles on display, yummy food and new this year, tons of vendor booths to keep you busy.  Not to mention, THE GAME!    The honorary first pitch will be thrown from the mound by Northern Lights Foundation Recipient, Isaac Carlson who is 7 years old.  Former Chief of Police, Scott Lyons will try to keep order at home plate as our Umpire. (we have total faith in him)!  Thank you to the Duluth Huskies, they are donating all the proceeds from the concession stands to the Northern Lights Foundation, so come hungry!  Find out how you could win MN Twins tickets, 2018 Huskie's season tickets, dinner with the Duluth Fire Chief and a tour with the Duluth Police Chief.  It's just $5 admission fee for all the fun that benefits the Northern Lights Foundation! There is the option of purchasing a special $20 ticket for families of 5 or more.
