A total of $656,500 was raised at this year's Phillies Phestival. Thousands of fans attended the charity event at Citizens Bank Park, with monies raised to provide much-needed research, patient care and services for ALS patients in the Greater Philadelphia area. Since the Phillies adopted ALS as their primary charity in 1984, nearly $17.7 million has been raised for the fight against the disease
Game postponed due to weather
We didn't get to stay at the game. Maymay's anxiety took over at the top of the second inning, so we left. The Phillies staff was incredibly helpful, and made the situation easier to handle.
Lots of festivities planned for the day including a Phillies Opening Day Block Party, presented by Budweiser, on Citizens Bank Way, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. This free pre-game event features entertainment, food, a huge Ferris wheel, face painters and more! Plus, take #selfies at the large #OpeningDay sign at the Third Base Gate.
Commemorative Knit Hat for all fans
