Pregame fans are encouraged to get to the ballpark early as a large crowd is anticipated. The first 20,000 fans will receive a Blue Jays Red Bucket hat presented by Honda when gates open at 11:00 am. For the duration of the game, the Blue Jays will celebrate Canada's birthday with a licensed festival that includes live music, entertainment and great giveaways outside gates 10/11.
