SAN JOSE, CA- The San Jose Giants announced today their inaugural Gigante Trick-or-Treat Contest. On October 31, two lucky children will get the chance to walk their neighborhood with the San Jose Giants mascot. One winner will be selected through the organization's social media pages (Like the San Jose Giants on Facebook, follow @SJGiants on Twitter and Instagram). The other will be chosen from Enter to Win contestants at Happy Hollow's Haunt the Hollow on Sunday, October 27.
"If your little slugger or fairy princess is a Giants fan, this is the Halloween contest for you," said Juliana Paoli, San Jose Giants Chief Marketing Officer. "This is your child's chance to experience trick-or-treating like never before and be the talk of the neighborhood when Gigante joins him or her for some Halloween fun."
