Looking for something fun to do for Father’s Day? The Red Sox have a great event coming up that is free and open to everyone, thanks in part to Bank of America.

Here are the details:

Dads and their families are invited to walk around the warning track from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wally the Green Monster and his Dad, Walter, will engage children. Face painters, stilt walkers, and caricature and balloon artists will also entertain children. All are welcome to enter Fenway Park at Gate C.

Additionally, dads can enjoy free tours of Fenway Park all day, every hour on the hour, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The annual celebration of Father’s Day at Fenway Park, established in 2002, gives fans the opportunity to walk around the warning track, sit inside visitor and home dugouts, take photos with Red Sox alumni, and participate in other family-friendly activities. The event is free.

Fans can enter the ballpark through Gate C. Red Sox alumnus Sam Horn will take photos and meet fans in the Red Sox dugout, and the three World Series Trophies will be placed behind home plate for photos.
Wally the Green Monster and his dad, Walter, will be on hand, accompanied by a balloon artist, face painter, caricature artist, and stilt walker.

In an effort to highlight the memories made at this event, Bank of America is inviting participants to share their favorite moments from the day using #MLBmemorybank.
