Cubs unveil full Wrigley Field promotional schedule

The Cubs unveiled their Party of the Century itinerary Tuesday afternoon, celebrating 100 years of Wrigley Field. And the festivities promise to have a little something for everyone.

While there will be multiple promotions and giveaways to help celebrate the Party of the Century, there are three basic components to the fun.

Giveaways begin the opening homestand and continue throughout the year. Starting with the Reds series on April 18, the Cubs will commemorate a different decade at every homestand. Both teams will wear throwback uniforms from the respective era on Sundays, and there will be giveaways such as decade-specific bobbleheads on Fridays and toys or trinkets that were popular from the time period on Sundays.

Below is a rundown of the various gameday promotions so you can plan your trips to Wrigley Field accordingly.
