What's the rain policy?

If an event is canceled due to inclement weather, we will immediately update our website and social media as soon as we have information. Weather can change quickly, so be sure to stay tuned to these channels for any and all updates! If no further updates are posted, no changes to the event time have been made.

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 2022 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 Ticket Office when you have picked out a new date.

Will Santa be there?

Yes! Santa will be available every Saturday night through December 17, as well as December 21, 22 and 23.

Can I bring in strollers or wheelchairs?

Yes. We allow both at Segra Park.

Is there a clear bag policy?
