More importantly for Chiara the park has a bouncy house and playscape that are open before and all through the game and had another 2 big bouncy houses open out front a little before the game. The park also has a "train" that drives in the parking lot and the 4 of us rode that when the kids were ready for a break from the bouncy houses. We also saw (and Chiara hi-fived) the HE Buddy mascot. And we saw Spike and his dad but not up close. I can't even say how much joy it gives me to know that someone had the idea and then made an extra mascot for Spike's dad to be at the game.
The greatest tragedy of the evening was that we never found the mythical face painting booth. Even without face painting we had great fun and got to spend a little time with our friends.
