WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - The people of Westeros will take over Nationals Park in an event during the Nationals v. Cincinnati Reds game Friday night.
Game of Thrones Night will be held at Nationals Park as a themed night during Friday's game. The ballpark will hang 10 banners in areas throughout the field. The Iron Throne itself will be inside the Strike Zone in the Right Field Plaza for fans to take pictures with. The Throne weighs over 800 lbs, according to the release from the Washington Nationals.
To add to the fun, the scoreboard will display themed player headshots, videos, music and games. Fans are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite characters for a costume contest at the game.
A GOT-themed menu is also included and the Presidents will be dressed up during the game.
In prep for the event, the Nationals will hide 10 prize-filled dragon eggs Tuesday morning throughout the DMV metro region. A Westeros-themed map of the locations will be posted throughout the Nationals social media channels.
The eggs hidden contain Friday’s game T-shirt, two tickets to the game and a fast-pass to take a picture in the Iron Throne.
Tickets are available at www.nationals.com. The game begins Friday night at 7:05 p.m.
