We love our D-backs! Check out the link above for schedule of games this summer, and if you’re looking for a StarWars themed night, a game you can bring your canine friend to, a fireworks show or a concert after the game, check out the D-backs Promotional Calendar too!

Flashlight Tours at Desert Botanical Garden 
Nights in the Desert are anything but dull. Nighthawks fly, night-blooming flowers open, toads sing and owls watch, as you stroll along the trails there is a surprise around each corner. Be ready to be adventurous! You will view critters such as snakes, scorpions, and desert tortoises first hand at guided stations. Great for families and children of all ages. Remember to bring your own flashlight! Fun for all ages / Thursdays and Saturdays / June, July and August / 7-9 p.m. / Included with regular Garden admission price

Phoenix Zoo – Prowl and Play Nights

The Phoenix Zoo’s summer evening event, Prowl & Play, lets you experience the Zoo in a whole new light…or dark! This event offers unique and exciting activities, allowing you to explore, see and hear the Zoo differently than during a daytime visit. Let the kids cool off at Leapin’ Lagoon or Yakulla Caverns and slip and slide down the ever popular inflatable water slide! Throughout the evening you’ll also enjoy animal encounters, activities, music and more. Adults (21 years old and older) may also enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine. Prowl & Play is fun for the entire family!

All ages / Dates vary, 6:00 – 9:30 pm / Click for list of dates and cost of admission
