Southwest Airlines is sporting our version of a “double header” in Denver this weekend by offering special promotions for baseball’s Opening Day 2010 on Friday and the Denver Nuggets game against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night.
To celebrate Opening Day, Southwest Employees dressed in full-uniform (that's Southwest uniforms, not baseball uniforms) will be walking around the “LoDo” (Lower Downtown) area and Coors Field between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday handing out Southwest Airlines branded baseball cards inviting Denverites to participate in our “Denver Baseball Vacation” online sweepstakes, with a chance to win a baseball getaway for two. The getaway for two includes tickets on Southwest Airlines, hotel accommodations, and game tickets to a Rockies away game. To register, Customers will visit southwest.com/denverbaseball.
As the official airline of the Denver Nuggets, Saturday will be designated “Southwest Airlines Night with the Nuggets.” To celebrate, Southwest is throwing a tailgate party beginning at 5 p.m. at a Southwest Airlines tent outside the Pepsi Center. The first 80 Nuggets fans who show up at the Southwest tent, find the Southwest mascot, and say, “Bags Fly Free only on Southwest Airlines,” will win tickets to Saturday night’s game. The tent will be marked by a Southwest Airlines cold-air balloon and will be located on the West Side of the Pepsi Center. Southwest will also have local Denver musician, Angie Stevens, performing at the tent between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. In addition to the tailgate party, Southwest will be handing out a $25 off fare-saver coupons to the first 7,000 fans that arrive at the Denver Nuggets game.
