SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – The San Diego Padres are heading to the postseason, and while fans can’t attend games at Petco Park, the team is giving the Friar Faithful a chance to cheer them on at the ballpark while in their cars.

The Padres Postseason Watch Party will take place during next week’s Wild Card round, with the drive-in event happening in Petco Park’s Lexus Premier Lot on K Street, off 14th Street.

RVs and campers will not be allowed at the watch party.

The games will be shown on three separate large LED video screens, and fans at the event will be able to choose from different restaurant partners -- depending on the game -- when it comes to the ballpark eats. Fans will also be able to order standard Petco Park fare, as well as team merchandise, through the MLB Ballpark app.

The team is reminding those who attend that health and safety measures will be in place, such as guests remaining in their vehicles unless they are visiting a retailer onsite or using a restroom.

Face masks are required for all fans; the team says all staff members at the event will be wearing masks and conducting routine cleaning.

Tickets for Game 1 (Sept. 30); Game 2 (Oct. 1); and Game 3 (if necessary, Oct. 2) of the Wild Card round are available for purchase.
