Lowriders de Fresno cruise into downtown

The Fresno Grizzlies are debuting a new alter-ego that comes with an event-filled weekend in downtown.

The minor-league baseball team will be known as the Lowriders de Fresno for games Saturday and Sunday at Chukchansi Park.

But that’s not all.

Saturday started with a free car show on Fulton Street, a block beyond left field at Chukchansi. An awards ceremony was planned for inside the park before the Saturday night game, and postgame entertainment came in the form of a concert by Cisco Kid and WAR.

Sunday festivities include lowrider cars on display inside the park beginning at 4 p.m.; a 5:05 first pitch; and a postgame lowrider cruise on Fulton.
