As fans enter Skylands Stadium, they will be greeted by Miners players wearing camouflage jerseys and then check out an F-22 trailer on display from the United States Air Force. Pre-game festivities will lead off with an amazing parade of first responder vehicles from Lakeland Emergency Squad, Branchville Fire Department, New Jersey State Police, Sussex County Sheriff’s Office, Sussex County HAZMAT Team, and Warren County HAZMAT Team. The national anthem will be performed by the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard Unit.

Kids can also meet and have their photo taken with special mascot guests Sparky the Fire Dog and Smokey the Bear. Speaking of mascots, Herbie the Miner and Jack the Jackal will square off in comedic competitions and hijinks! Following the game, the night will climax with the largest fireworks show in Sussex County—with double the firepower—presented by Garden State Fireworks.
