The Pawtucket Red Sox will offer their 2nd Annual "PawSox Enchanted Village" Holiday Party at McCoy Stadium on Saturday, December 3. The event, in which the ballpark becomes a Winter Wonderland, is free and open to fans of all ages. PawSox/Red Sox left-handed pitcher Brian Johnson will be in attendance at McCoy to meet fans. Mascots Paws and Sox as well as Santa Claus will also greet fans young and old. In addition, the Boston Red Sox will provide access to their "Red Sox Virtual Reality" which will be set-up in one of the McCoy suites. The Virtual Reality offers viewers a 360 degree look around Fenway Park, giving fans the experience that they are standing on the field with the players, at batting practice, in the dugout, and other fun Fenway experiences. Fans will be greeted at the Main Gate by carolers from Pawtucket's Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing and Visual Arts, before traversing a special "behind-the-scenes" path throughout the ballpark. As they tour the decorated "Hall of History" and peruse the memorabilia along the walls, fans will be able to enter several "workshops" in the suites to indulge in various activities and refreshments. Among the highlights in one of the suites is "Fenway Fantasy" where fans of all ages can try on several authentic player uniforms, spikes, gloves, and other Red Sox artifacts. A "SugarLand" suite is packed with cookies and hot chocolate for the tasting and taking. Youngsters are also invited to take Batting Practice inside the home batting tunnel, which has been transformed into a Fenway Park-like Wiffle Ball field. Paws and Sox will be stationed inside the PawSox Home Clubhouse to meet young fans and listen to their holiday wishes. Weather-permitting, folks can wander out from the PawSox Clubhouse to the home team dugout and to the field, where they will be greeted by a large Christmas Tree at home plate. Families are welcome to take photos around the tree. Fans can then walk through the Visitors' Dugout and head in to the Visiting Clubhouse, which will be stocked with food and drink, including traditional ballpark fare and other refreshments all for free!!
