SWFL students get free tickets for Mighty Mussels’ ‘School’s Out Celebration’ on June 3

The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels are offering free tickets to all Southwest Florida children and teens as part of the minor league team’s School’s Out Celebration on June 3.

Public schools in Lee and Collier counties wrap up the 2021-22 academic year on June 2. Many private and charter schools follow a similar schedule.

“This has been a long school year and students are ready to blow off some steam, and there’s no better place to do that than at the ballpark,” said Team President Chris Peters. “When our new majority partner, John Martin, purchased the Mighty Mussels, his top priority was creating a safe environment for affordable family fun. It doesn’t get more affordable than free.”

Free tickets for the June 3 game are available at the Mighty Mussels box office on game day. There will be a postgame fireworks show after the final out.

In addition to the School’s Out Celebration, the Mighty Mussels’ May 31 to June 5 homestand also includes Faith & Family Night on June 4, highlighted by a free postgame concert from Sidewalk Prophets, and Yoga at the Ballpark on June 5, when fans can join yoga experts for a pregame yoga session on the field.
