The Colorado Rockies’ 2017 schedule is set.

The Rockies will open next season on the road in a four-game series against Milwaukee. Their home opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. Friday, April 7.

Colorado’s schedule includes several holiday games at Coors Field. They’ll be at home for Mother’s Day (May 14), Memorial Day (May 29), Father’s Day (June 18), Independence Day (you can figure this one out) and Labor Day (Sept. 4).

The annual fireworks show will take place after the July 3 and 4 games, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Colorado closes the season against the Dodgers Oct. 1.

Here’s the full schedule:
