SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The San Francisco Giants will bring their World Series trophy to the City of South Lake Tahoe as part of their nationwide tour to give fans a chance to see the trophy in person.

A public viewing of the San Francisco Giants World Series trophy is scheduled from 2-4 p.m. April 2 at the City’s Parks and Recreation Center Complex, in the Gymnasium at 1180 Rufus Allen Blvd.

Fans will have an opportunity to have an official photograph taken with the trophy and will be accommodated on a first-come first-served basis, however only one photo per group will be permitted to keep the lines moving. Giants’ officials accompanying the trophy will be on hand and will make the determination for any special requests.

The event is free and open to public.

“We are all looking forward to this great event,” said Councilman Tom Davis, who initiated the effort to bring the trophy to South Lake Tahoe said.
