Mighty Mussels to celebrate the end of the school year on May 31

No more teachers, no more books… The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels are celebrating the end of the school year alongside Southwest Florida students by offering free youth tickets to the team’s home game on May 31.

The Mighty Mussels’ annual School’s Out Celebration falls on the last day of the school year for public school students in Lee County and a day after the final bell rings for Collier County students.

“It’s time for students to blow off a little steam; they’ve earned it,” said Mighty Mussels President Chris Peters. “They can yell and scream all they want… as long as they’re cheering for the Mighty Mussels!”

Students ages 18 and under can receive free Mighty Mussels tickets by visiting the box office at Hammond Stadium at the Lee Health Sports Complex. Parents do not need to present student IDs to receive free children’s tickets.

The School’s Out Celebration highlights a six-game homestand against the Bradenton Marauders, which also includes Military Appreciation Night on June 1. The Mighty Mussels will honor all active-duty military personnel and veterans, as well as their family members, by providing free tickets at the box office; a valid military ID is required.
