It was bound to happen eventually. 

With the millions of Harambe-inspired jokes and jabs sweeping the Internet -- and the insane amount of Harambe signs, posters and shirts churning across the college sporting scene -- we all knew that someone was bound to hold a Harambe night at a public sporting event.

That someone is the UMass Lowell River Hawks and it's happening Wednesday night.

The soccer team is hosting a theme night in memory of the Western lowland gorilla shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo last May. 

According to Fox Sports , fans wearing gorilla suits can win unnamed prizes, and the first 100 people through the door get a mini stuffed Harambe toy.
