Certain areas of the ballpark may remain closed due to inclement weather, particularly heavy rain and/or lightning. A specific answer as to which areas will be closed or which areas remain open is not possible because varying degrees of inclement weather cause different effects on different areas. The Columbia Fireflies make every effort to reopen the entire ballpark as quickly and safely as possible. 

In the event that the event is officially canceled, you will be able to exchange your ticket to any remaining 2023 Columbia Fireflies Holiday Lights date (based upon availability, no refunds will be issued). In order to do this, simply hold onto your ticket and bring it to the Dukes Investigations Fireflies Ticket Office when you have picked out a new date, or call ahead at 803-726-4487 ext. 1 with the order number.
