Springfield, MA – The Springfield Business Improvement District and the Springfield Thunderbirds are pleased to announce the commencement of Thunderbird Thursdays, presented by TD Bank. Join the T-Birds and the BID on Thursday, July 20th at The Shops at Marketplace for our “season opener.” 

Thunderbird Thursdays will run from 4:00 p.m. through 8:00 p.m. each week from July 20th to Oct 12th in downtown Springfield. Thunderbird Thursdays will rotate between three locations: 1350 Main Street by the Mass Live Building, The Shops at Marketplace at the rear of 1341 Main Street and Tower Square Park.   

Each of the special Thunderbird Thursdays will feature a guest Craft Brewer, live music, food, fun and games. The Thunderbirds’ promotional team will also be on site each week with an inflatable slap shot game, ticket information and raffle prizes and more. 

“We are thrilled to continue the Thunderbirds’ partnership with the Springfield BID to build up excitement for our 2017-18 season through Thunderbird Thursdays,” said Thunderbirds Executive Vice President Nathan Costa. “We see Thunderbird Thursday as another exciting and social atmosphere for our fans, much like the game night experience at the MassMutual Center.”
