Sundays at Petco Park are perfect for the whole family as KidsFest, presented by SDG&E, is back with bouncy castles, bouncy castles, games, face painters, balloon artists and other family-friendly activities two hours before first place in Gallagher Square. Upon returning for 2023, children under the age of 14 can attend autograph sessions with a Padres alumni or current player on select Sundays. After the game, kids can also participate in Kids Run the Bases. Sundays will continue to serve as military appreciation days presented by the USAA where the Padres will recognize the men and women who serve our country. Every Sunday there is a special salute recognizing different branches, milestones and military history. The Padres are proud to offer a variety of special offers for families, the military and first responders, including ticket discounts through GovX verification for the military (25 percent off Sundays and 10 percent off all other days) and first responders (25 percent off on designated First Responder Appreciation Days and 10 percent discount on all other days).
