Giants Ballpark Evolution

Take a unique look back to the scene 10 years ago as the Giants celebrated the opening of their new ballpark at China Basin.

Who planted the avocado tree beyond the centerfield fence and where do they keep the spare panda heads? These are just some of the questions for which we seek answers.

We all know that baseball is the all American sport. Carnivals are an all American past time.

This weekend the two will merge at AT&T Park in the City.

For the second year in a row, the parking lot across from McCovey Cove has been transformed into a county fair.

There are more than a dozen rides, midway games, music and food. General admission is free.  Rides will cost you $5.

The fair runs through this Sunday.

It has all the trappings of a typical county fair. That includes a sledgehammer challenge to ring a bell, a Ferris wheel and other ways to lose money in hopes of getting that "must have" over-sized stuffed animal.

Last year more than 40,000 people visited the parking transformed into a fairground.
