On Saturday, the Camden Riversharks will host a screening of Sharknado[2] after the 5:35 p.m. game against the Long Island Ducks. Appropriate!

The film received so-so ratings but led to a flurry of jokes on social media[3]. (It later got its highest rating on its third airing[4].)

The Riversharks will also be holding “special Sharknado promotions” during the game, including “giveaways and a Sharknado t-shirt toss.” The movie follows the game, fireworks, and a Kids Run the Bases promotion.

Camden’s baseball team is having a weekend full of ridiculous/awesome promotions. On Friday night, fans can sleep over in the outfield[5] after the game. Then on Sunday, you can bring your dog to the game[6]. Saturday is also apparently “Baconfest presented by Adopt a Pig.” If you have a friend in the Victor building who will let you stay over Saturday night, you literally won’t have to leave the Camden waterfront all weekend.
