Children's birthday parties are fun-filled affairs featuring cake, presents and entertainment designed to make the birthday child feel like the most important person in the world on that day. Nashville, Tennessee, and the surrounding Middle Tennessee area feature birthday party venues that can make their special day even more memorable through unique experiences they will remember for years.
The Nashville Sounds are the AAA minor-league baseball affiliate for the Milwaukee Brewers, and Greer Stadium offers baseball-themed children's birthday parties. The birthday child's day starts with a party in a special birthday area, featuring hot dogs, soda and a birthday cake. The birthday guest of honor also receives a souvenir Nashville Sounds baseball and a visit from the official mascot, Ozzie. Guests also receive tickets to the game, and the birthday child will have his birthday recognized over the public announcement system as the entire stadium sings "Happy Birthday."
