Indians Snow Days are coming to Progressive Field 11.26.1009/23/2010 11:17 AM ET
Progressive Field will open its gates to the public for the first time during the offseason beginning "Snopening Day" Friday, November 26 from Noon-10PM for a unique event, featuring ice skating and snow tubing, that is sure to become a popular destination in Northeast Ohio this winter.
"We created Indians Snow Days at Progressive Field to be the destination for winter entertainment in Northeast Ohio," said Indians Vice President of Public Relations BOB DIBIASIO. "This first of its kind event will give downtown Cleveland another marquee attraction this winter that will be sure to create memories for families, friends and co-workers."
Each day, the Indians will blanket Progressive Field with 150 tons of snow, which will result in more than 5,000 tons of snow over the course of the event.
