Kannapolis Cannon Ballers Stadium- Something Fun to Do in the Lake Norman Area

As we’re nearing the summer months, you may be looking for something fun to do in the Lake Norman area for a date night or outing with family and friends. What better way to spend a summer day than at a baseball game? You can enjoy America’s Pastime by driving just a few minutes to Kannapolis, NC, where the Kannapolis Cannon Ballers (minor league team) call their home!

During construction, Atrium Ball Park made a generous allocation of funds towards making a playground on-site that can be used even on non-game days! It features one of North Carolina’s two rope-and-cable play structures, complete with a slide! The splash pad (which is great on hot days) includes passive foot-activated nozzles.

Game Day Highlights:

Dinosaur Day at the Ballpark

Jurassic Ballpark, Sunday, May 22, 2022. Gates open 12 PM, First pitch 1 PM.

Something that this ballpark does a great job of is offering game day highlights. Coming up this weekend is the Jurassic Ballpark, an event where interactive dinosaur displays take over the park. If you love baseball and your kids love dinosaurs (hey, even if YOU are the dinosaur lover…no judgement!), this would be a great family outing!

Future Game Highlights: Boy Scout Night & Girl Scout NIght, Bark in the Park, Faith Night, Kids Run the Bases, Thirsty Thursday, Post Game Fireworks, $2 Tuesday

Last Inning:

The greater Lake Norman area really does offer a tremendous amount of things that you can do individually, with friends, or with family. There is always something fun to do in the Lake Norman area! Outside of major cities, it’s pretty rare to have something as fun as a major or minor league baseball game to attend. What is more American than that?

I will be the first to tell you that living in the Lake Norman area is like hitting a home run every day. There is always something to do, places to visit, and restaurants to try out.
