SnakeBall on SaturdayWritten by Theresa Rose on July 13, 2016
Burlington Downtown Partners will hold the 7th Annual SnakeBall event at 9 AM, racing baseballs down Burlington’s landmark Snake Alley. Participants may purchase SnakeBalls at the Greater Burlington Partnership office, 610 N 4th St, Suite 200, Burlington, IA through Friday. Each SnakeBall costs $10 and are also available the morning of at the top of Snake Alley. Burlington Bees players along with Buzz will be on hand to meet and give autographs. The winner is the ball that makes it the farthest down the Alley. The best part is that it is open to all ages, with no special skill required. Prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, along with a “Home Run” prize for farthest overall distance. New this year, the winner of SnakeBall will be throwing out the first pitch at the Burlington Bees game that evening.
