Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory spreads the yuletide cheer in downtown Louisville with a new offering – Holidays at The Big Bat, which begins November 29th and runs thru January 5th. Every Saturday and Sunday through December 20, kids 12 and under receive free admission. From December 21 – January 5 every day is free admission for kids 12 and under.

Holidays at The Big Bat includes the Grand Slam Wonderland, a new holiday experience for family fun. In the Grand Slam Wonderland, guests will feel the merry spirit from the décor and special programming. Kids can even test their indoor snowball-throwing skills in the delightful winter landscape.

On Saturday, December 7th and 21st, Mrs. Claus visits the Grand Slam Wonderland. Songs of festive cheer will fill the air as she leads holiday sing-alongs. Mrs. Claus will also read from some of her favorite Christmas stories and be available for photo ops.

Santa Claus stops at the museum for photo ops on December 8th, 14th, 15th and 22nd. Other photo opportunities include posing with giant wrapped presents, that fit the theme of big things at the museum! Guests can also decorate mini-bats and make their own holiday ornaments from bat nubs.

In addition to the Grand Slam Wonderland, other special programming around the museum includes video game tournaments in the museum’s theater. Throughout the day, guests can play Nintendo 64 classics, Mario Kart 64 and Super Smash Bros.

“There’s no need to make a trip to The North Pole to get into the holiday spirit,” said Anne Jewell, Vice President and Executive Director of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “Families will discover plenty of festive fun, photo ops and much more that will make lasting memories this season!”
