The first day of spring is March 20th. We. Made. It. We’re now entering the season of longer days, new blooms, green grass and warmer weather. We are currently picturing ourselves frolicking through fields of tulips and high-fiving each other for surviving the winter. Anyone else? To celebrate we figured we’d help you out of your cabin fever with some springtime activities right here in Mercer. Kick off the season with some fresh air with these outdoor, family-friendly events below!

Trenton Thunder 

First game begins April 12th

A perfect outing involving all the fun foods (hotdogs, nachos, peanuts, cracker jackets…), cheers, laughs and family bonding. It’s great for a guy’s night, date night, family outing and corporate event because it’s a fun time for everyone and for all ages. It’s an American pastime for a reason. Opening Night against the Portland Sea Dogs will kick off their 2019 season! The first 2,000 fans, ages 14 and older, will receive a Thunder Scarf.  There are several promotions and giveaways to look forward to this season!
