SAN DIEGO -- The Padres on Monday released their promotional schedule for the upcoming season, and there's a particular theme to it.

Or, more like it, themes.

• Complete 2016 promotional schedule

Star Wars Day, Ghostbusters Day and Game of Thrones Day are three of several theme games the Padres will offer in 2016.

The team will also have Pride Night, Superhero Day, Zombie Day, Faith and Family Night and Sunday Funday in addition to various Heritage Nights to honor different cultures.

Theme game packages include a game ticket and an exclusive giveaway item. Fans will have access to a theme game presale beginning Wednesday at padres.com/themegames.

The promotional schedule also includes the return of Way Back Wednesdays and Friday night Party in the Park, presented by Southwest Airlines. 

9/26/15: Padres Social Hour

Every Tuesday home game will once again be Taco Tuesday presented by Cholula Hot Sauce, featuring $1 street tacos sold at concession locations throughout the ballpark.

Way Back Wednesdays will continue to celebrate Padres history, with five summer day games (June 8, June 15, June 29, Aug. 3 and Aug. 24) on the calendar.

For the games, players will wear home white, blue and orange pinstripe uniforms worn by the Padres from 1991 to 2001. In-game music, graphics and other entertainment features will add to the Way Back Wednesday theme on these days.

As previously announced, Baseball Night in San Diego returns in 2016, with every Saturday home game offering a giveaway or event for all fans. Three Friday games (June 17, July 1 and Aug. 5) and two Sunday games (April 24 and May 22) also will feature a giveaway or event.

The full schedule can be found at padres.com/BNISD.

The Padres will continue to honor those who serve throughout the season, with First Responders salutes on six Fridays, as well as Military Appreciation Day every Sunday.

The entire promotions and events calendar is available at padres.com/promotions. The 2016 promotional schedule is subject to change.

Single-game tickets for all home games will go on sale to the general public Feb. 11 at 10 a.m. at padres.com.
