The Dynamo and Mustang CAT will also give out free Thundersticks to the first 5,000 fans at the game.

Dynamo Diesel, the Dynamo mascot, will celebrate his birthday (albeit a few days late) with his mascot friends from around town, including TORO from the Texans, the Astros’ Orbit, Shasta and Sasha from the University of Houston, and Swoop from Houston Community College.

A number of the pregame and in-game entertainment elements will feature children or be youth-focused, including a Kid PA Announcer, Kid Sideline Reporter, Kid Reporters in the press box, and a children’s choir from Yeager Elementary performing the National Anthem. There will also be face painters and balloon artists stationed outside the stadium and around the concourse; and several video board elements will feature children – those in the crowd, the Dynamo players’ kids and the Dynamo players themselves as kids.
