Each night will include Anna, Elsa, Belle, Rapunzel, and Cinderella appearances provided by Magic, Music, and More, a costume contest (all fans dressed as a princess, or as a prince, will receive a voucher for a FREE small soft drink), and, this will also be the first Fireworks Friday of the year with a post-game princess themed fireworks show.

In addition, special princess ticket packages are available. Twenty fans on each date will have the opportunity to have a meet and greet with Anna and Elsa before the game.

For $150, fans will receive two Reserved seat tickets, a 40 minute meet and greet with Anna & Elsa (6:05-6:45), 1 Slammers princess t-shirt, 1 princess souvenir item, cupcakes, and milk.
