The Omaha Royals are planning to celebrate Rosenblatt Stadium during the final regular season game there this week.

When the Royals play the Round Rock Express Thursday, there will be a fan festival beforehand, appearances by former players and fireworks afterward.

The first 2,000 fans who arrive after the gates open at 5:30 p.m. will receive miniature stadium seats.

The free festival before the game will also feature inflatables, face painters, live music and clowns.

A new downtown ballpark will replace Rosenblatt next year. The site of Rosenblatt will be used to expand the Omaha Zoo.

The stadium was built in 1947 and hosted the College World Series for the 61st, and last, time in June.

The Royals are moving to a new stadium in Sarpy County.
