HOUSTON - If you can't make it to Boston to cheer on the Astros this weekend, you can still have a ball at the official watch parties here in Houston!

The 'Stros will take on the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday and on Sunday in the American League Championship Series.

Back here at home, the official Astros watch parties will kick off at Minute Maid Park on Crawford Street.

They have been scheduled to start at 5 p.m. on Saturday and at 4 p.m. on Sunday and will last until the end of each game, officials said.

DON'T FORGET: Fans must claim a FREE general admission voucher in order to attend the event.

The watch parties are always a good time and a great, safe way to cheer on the home team.

There will be live music, food trucks, face painters and caricature artists. There will also be a photo booth, inflatables, bar games and appearances by the Shooting Stars and Orbit.

General Admission vouchers must be presented at entry via the Ballpark App. No PDFs will be permitted, and physical ticket vouchers will not be available at gates.
