WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) - Coronavirus has canceled a lengthy list of Fourth of July events, but not the Waterloo Buck's annual Fourth of July game.

According to Bucks general manager, Dan Corbin, there will be fun festivities in store for fans, but there will be safety precautions in place.

"Typically we expect over 2,000 for our Fourth of July game, but that'll be different this year with social distancing policies."

After the Bucks take on the Mankato Moondogs, the team will hold their ten to fifteen-minute fireworks extravaganza show. General admission is six dollars in advance or eight dollars on game day.

While there are no major changes to the game's layout, Corbin said fans will be expected to follow safety precautions throughout the stadium.

"Safety precautions in the stands every other row will be blocked off, the two end seats of every aisle was blocked off," Corbin said, "where you wont be able to sit so people can walk up and down the aisle safely."

Other precautions are:

  • six feet apart ground symbols
  • kids not permitted on the field
  • encourage face masks in the stands
  • separate entrance for pre-purchased tickets

Although COVID changed a few details, Corbin says he's happy to bring some normalcy back to people's lives.

"This has been a long time in the works to even get our season started to where it is now," Corbin said, "So to bring, you know I want to bring some normalcy back to the Cedar Valley."

The organization is highly recommending fans to pre-purchase tickets online, in order to avoid congestion in front of the ticket office.

The game will start at six thirty five pm.
