Blue Jays to host first of four fan festivals on Friday
The Blue Jays will host the first of four summer fan festivals on Friday outside the Rogers Centre.

Presented by Schneiders Grill'ems, the festivals will take place on four Fridays this season outside gates 10 & 11 and are open to all fans with tickets to games that evening.

The festivals, which begin at 4:30 p.m., will have live music, special guests, interactive games and activities. Each week, fans will also have the opportunity to win prizes and one lucky fan will even have the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for that evening's game.

This Friday's fan festival will feature a guest appearance by award-winning chef Ted Reader, who will do live cooking demonstrations and give away prizes to fans.

The three other festival dates are July 27, August 10 and August 17.
