It's a sure sign of Spring...the birds are chirping, the flowers are budding, and the grass is getting greener each day.

Springtime is here in Eastern Iowa and one of the brightest signs is the return of Cedar Rapids Kernels, who open the home season this Saturday April 8 at Perfect Game Park.

This year, 94.1 KRNA will host the always popular Thirsty Thursday promotions with low priced beers and other beverages during every Thursday home game.

In addition, during every Thursday home game, fans age 18 and older get a free raffle ticket for a chance to win one of three 40-inch flat screen TVs to be given away by First Federal Credit Union.

Jaymz Larson will continue to host many of the Kernels' mid-inning festivities for over a dozen home games this season. Be sure to look for KRNA at the stadium for many of the Thirsty Thursdays with fun and games, plus prizes and giveaways.

Our first Thirsty Thursday will be April 13 when the Kernels take on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. I can already smell those hot dogs!
