Fans can pose with trophy at Phils' Holiday Sale

This weekend, fans can not only gawk at the first Phillies World Series trophy in 28 years - and only the team's second ever - but they can get their pictures taken next to it.

For free.

"Phanta Claus" - who looks suspiciously like the Phanatic in a Santa suit - will also pose with fans.

The photo ops are part of the annual Holiday Sale at the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park. Fans can even park for free. Head for Lot S, off Pattison Avenue, and mention the holiday sale.

Saturday's hoopla will also feature a 5 p.m. tree-lighting ceremony featuring carolers, ballgirls and Phanta.

The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. The Tiffany & Co.-crafted trophy will be on view from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Phanta will pose from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.

If you go: Fans are asked to bring canned goods to donate to local food bank Philabundance. "They're in need of food desperately, and we're trying to help them out," said Phillies spokeswoman Deborah Rinaldi.
