Chukchansi Park will host World Series Watch Parties in celebration of the San Francisco Giants reaching their second World Series in the last three years, the Fresno Grizzlies announced today.
Games 1 and 2 along with Games 4-7 will be shownlive throughout Chukchansi Park, including on the stadium’s video board, for local Grizzlies and Giants fans to attend and watch. Admission and parking to the World Series Watch Parties are free, and there will be prizes and giveaways for those in attendance. Concession stands and the Grizzlies Team Store will beopen for fans as well.
“We cannot wait to host Grizzlies and Giants fans at our ‘home’ over the next week,” said Chris Cummings, Managing General Partner and Team President of the Grizzlies.
“As in 2010, the excitement and buzz surrounding the Giants in their push for the championship is contagious. Some former Grizzlies are playing in San Francisco, but we want to see local fans come out to Chukchansi Park and cheer on these Farm Grown stars from afar. We would also like to thank the City of Fresno for allowing us to open the facility for these celebratory days.”
