Salango Law, GoMart, and Charleston Dirty Birds partner for six-week holiday light show extravaganza

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – All are invited to spend the holiday season with the Dirty Birds at the first-ever Salango Law Dirty Birds Light the Night presented by GoMart! 

From November 17 through January 1, GoMart Ballpark will turn merry and bright with an avalanche of holiday cheer, larger-than-life decorations and enough lights to temporarily blind a reindeer. It is the most epic holiday light extravaganza in West Virginia—perhaps, the entire western hemisphere!

To pull it off, the Dirty Birds have partnered with the Florence Y’alls of the Frontier League, whose Deck The Y’alls Lightfest drew over 30,000 merry revelers out to their ballpark last year.

“It’s easily our favorite thing to do outside of the season,” said David DelBello, owner and CEO of the Y’alls.

“It gives our fans and our community another awesome way to spend time together during the holidays, without spending a ton of money,” added Andy Shea, in his third year as the Charleston Dirty Birds’ owner and CEO. “We want to see this become an annual tradition for our team and fans.”

The six-week event will have something for everyone, with rides and games for kiddos, appearances by classic holiday characters, festive music, a holiday market and more. With plenty of sweets, eats, and spirits to enjoy, the ballpark won’t be the only thing getting lit this season. Come make some new friends, bring some old ones, and enjoy some cold ones at the Dirty Birds Light the Night!

Event Highlights:

· More than two million lights choreographed to holiday classics

· Outdoor ice skating rink

· Holiday carnival and entertainers

· Fireworks show

· Christmas vendors

· Unique food and beverage

· Holiday music and caroling

· Fire pits with build-your-own s’mores
