The Cubs announced late Tuesday that they would be opening the Park at Wrigley for watch parties for the first two games of their NLDS matchup against the Nationals, which will take place in Washington Friday and Saturday.
If the series goes to a full five games, there will be another watch party Thursday, October 12 for Game 5.
The game will be shown on the large video screen on the Cubs’ office building. You will need to buy a ticket to enter. The cost is $10, with net proceeds benefiting Cubs Charities, which provides increased access to sports opportunities and targets improvements in health, fitness and education for those at risk. You can purchase a maximum of four tickets. Children age 2-and-under are free. Limited seating will be available on-site.
Park at Wrigley gates will open an hour before the start of the broadcast and will close at the conclusion of the event. There will be food and beverages available for purchase, as well as some giveaways. Event parking is free on a first-come, first-served basis in the Cubs parking lot located at 1126 W. Grace St. All bags, purses and containers will be inspected prior to entry. Guests also will be checked for prohibited items.
