You can live out your Fenway fantasies this summer without even setting foot inside the famed ballpark with the Red Sox Showcase.

The truck of fun is back this year, teaming up with T-Mobile to travel around Boston and New England throughout the rest of the season. Fans can stop by the festivities to experience a host of baseball-related activities that should keep Red Sox nation pumped up as the team looks to make a run for the 2017 playoffs.

The best part? It’s all free.

After stopping in South Boston earlier this week, the Red Sox Showcase will ship over to Hardiman Playground in Brighton for the City of Boston Fenway Challenge, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 4.
