After the Giants (hopefully) beat the Padres, they’re putting on a fireworks show. If you go to the game, you’ll be able to watch the show set to the music of The Beatles, but even if you can’t make it, you’ll still be able to enjoy them if you just look up around 10:15pm.
Cost: Whatever it costs you to get tix to the game or free
