Pittsburgh loves a good party. The Penguins have hosted iconic ‘watch parties’ for years, and now the Bucs are going to host one of their own, as well. It was just announced that the Pirates ‘Postseason Watch Party’ will be on Federal Street beside PNC Park for game number one against the Cardinals on Thursday night.
“This series promises to be another great chapter in this incredible season, and we want to ensure all of our loyal fans have the opportunity to be a part of the festivities, the electricity of the first postseason game at PNC Park showed how passionate Pittsburgh is about the Pirates and we want to give fans the opportunity to join together again to cheer on the team.” Frank Coonelly. Pittsburgh Pirates President.
The Pirates will have their Clubhouse Store open and there will be food – and of course, a few beverages. The local bars and restaurants will be open as well. The release mentioned that Pirates fans are encouraged to bring chairs.
No grills or glass bottles will be permitted.
An important traffic note is that Federal Street and The Clemente Bridge are going to close to traffic at 10am. The National League Division Series starts at 5:07pm and will be shown on a large projection screen.
Also if you live near Altoona, The Curve are opening their ballpark for the game.
