It's not just a nice day out -- it's a nice Opening Day. And the street festival in front of Minute Maid Park is already in full swing.
A ton of Clear Channel radio stations are on hand, there are interactive games, Junction Jack is walking around, and later this afternoon is a pep rally with Astro players.
Gates to the stadium open at 4 p.m.; the official pre-game ceremonies kick off at 5:30 and first pitch against the San Francisco Giants gets thrown at 6:05.
