Wilson’s World: Previewing ‘Friends’ Night with the Charlotte Knights at BB&T Ballpark

The Charlotte Knights take on the Gwinnett Stripers at 7:04 tonight.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Knights will be kicking off a 4 game home stand against the Gwinnett Stripers tonight with a special ‘Friends’ night.  Wilson was with Homer at BB&T Ballpark this morning chasing down innocent people just trying to get to work to get them to sing the theme song from the TV show and giving them a free Knights tee-shirt.

Wilson had a surprise this morning when he was ”the one with the monkey” and received a visit from ‘Marcel’ the Monkey a.k.a Willow from Darby Acres Farm & Safari.   Darby Acres is an animal education group that offers guided tours, summer camps and even a traveling petting zoo with the purpose of teaching people more about animals and how they should be treated.  You can follow Darby Acres Farm & Safari on Facebook @DarbyAcresFarm or get more information on them at their website darbyacresfarm.com.
