$8 Family FIREWORKS Night by Aaron’s Returns Saturday Night at Eldora

FREE Admission for Firefighters, Police, First Responders and Kids 12 & Younger!

ROSSBURG, Ohio (May 19, 2017) – Fans of all ages can expect to be entertained Saturday night when Eldora Speedway hosts its first $8 Family FIREWORKS Night presented by Aaron’s.

The fireworks on the track will be provided by the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds and the Eldora Stock Cars while the night will be topped off with a spectacular fireworks display shooting from Eldora’s “Pyro Hill.” Meanwhile, the entire family will be entertained by a plethora of events taking place throughout the facility.

Pit gates open 30 minutes earlier than normal for the race teams at 4:30 p.m. to allow the teams a little extra time to get their cars moved to the Fan Zone located outside Turns 3 & 4 for a special autograph session.

Spectator gates will open at 5 p.m. with the autograph session opening up immediately and running through 6 p.m. Drivers in both divisions will be on hand for the autograph session with many bringing other special treats making for a trick-or-treat-like atmosphere for the kids.

The “Fan Zone” will also feature bounce houses for the kids plus clowns and balloon twisters will work the concourse prior to the on-track activities.

For the adult fans, event sponsor Aaron’s will be holding a Register-to-Win contest for a living room set to be awarded later in the evening. The Aaron’s display will be in the Fan Zone.

The autograph session will end at 6:00 PM to allow the teams time to make final adjustments to their machines before the on-track activities begins with hot laps at 6:30 PM.

A parade of local fire and police departments is scheduled as part of opening ceremonies. Firefighters, Police and First Responders wearing their department’s t-shirt or uniform are admitted free to the grandstand.

Adult tickets for the Family Fireworks Night by Aaron’s are just $8.00 while children ages 12 and under are admitted FREE. Camping is free in Lots 1 through 5 for the weekend.
