Bob Ross Night on Saturday
DAYTONA BEACH, FL - The Daytona Tortugas are gearing up for the most unique and historic week of promotions at Radiology Associates Field at Jackie Robinson Ballpark, beginning with Bob Ross Night on Saturday, July 15th.
The Tortugas will celebrate the life of Bob Ross with the first ever Bob Ross Bobblehead this Saturday. Bob Ross was born in Daytona Beach and spent most of his life in Volusia County, having lived in nearby New Smyrna Beach at the time of his passing.
The jam packed day will begin with a Bob Ross Happy Little Fun Run around the Ballpark in the morning. The race will begin at 9 am and will feature canvases along the course for runners to stop and paint on.
The celebration continues with a pregame painting class, conducted by seven Bob Ross certified painters in Bob Ross themed-wigs at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in the early afternoon. The painting class begins at 5 PM and is already sold out.
Gates will open at 6 PM to the general public and the first 1,000 fans will receive the first ever Bob Ross Bobblehead. The Tortugas will also host a "Happy Little Tree dedication" on the Riverwalk at that time as well. Daytona will plant a tree in Bob Ross' honor.
On hand will be life-size Bob Ross cutouts, large canvas for the fans to enjoy, Bob Ross t-shirts and DVD's, and a Bob Ross Look-a-Like Contest for fans to partake in. First pitch is scheduled at 7:05 PM against the Clearwater Threshers.
The Tortugas are offering a Bob Ross T-Shirt and Ticket Package that includes a ticket to the game as well a Bob Ross Tortugas-Themed T-Shirt for just $20.
