“Spring Madness (414)” Balloons Invade Milwaukee
We’re welcoming “Spring Madness” back to Milwaukee during the team’s current nine-game, 11-day homestand with a new twist this year. And early risers this morning have a chance to be the first to get in on the fun.
Early this morning over 500 balloons are being placed around the city of Milwaukee in a variety of locations and landmarks, including Miller Park.
Update: As of approximately 5:30am this morning, all of the balloons at Miller Park have been claimed, but there are still many hidden around the city!
Each balloon includes a voucher for a pair of tickets to a “Spring Madness (414)” game at Miller Park, which will take place from May 13 – 15 when the Brewers host the Pittsburgh Pirates. In addition, some of the balloons will also include vouchers for other prizes such as autographed baseballs, a game-used jersey and a night in a suite.
Beginning at 5 a.m. this morning, fans may come to Miller Park to pick up a “Spring Madness (414)” balloon. Additional balloons will be scattered throughout the city. Upon locating a balloon, fans will want to pop it to have their prize revealed. There is a STRICT LIMIT of one balloon per person and the allotment of balloons is expected to be claimed quickly.
The “Spring Madness (414)” promotion will feature 50% off select tickets throughout the May 13 – 15 series. In addition, for all three games the Brewers will celebrate the “414” with special deals on select concession items. All domestic draft, 16-ounce beers will be $4, small Pepsi products and hot dogs will be $1, and nachos will be $4.
In past years, $1 hot dogs and small Pepsi products have been included in the Spring Madness offerings. The deals on draft beer and nachos are new for 2014.
