SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The San Francisco Giants will bring their World Series trophy to the city of South Lake Tahoe today 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. today 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. Fans are not permitted to touch the trophy and should be prepared to arrive early to ensure they have an opportunity to view the trophy during the two-hour stop in South Lake Tahoe.

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.

The trophy’s visit to South Lake Tahoe is near the end of the Tour, which began Jan. 4, 2011, in San Francisco and has included stops throughout Northern California, New York, Arizona and Oregon.
