The "Moe's Pirate Parrot Sidekick" promotion offers winners a chance to hang out with the Parrot and participate in the mascot's pregame on-field hijinks. The contest begins today, Monday March 30, 2015 and entries will be accepted through Sunday, May 17, 2015 and is open to all kids from the ages six to 14 years old. Parents may enter their child to win at any of the six participating Moe's Southwest Grill greater Pittsburgh area locations.

Prior to each home game at PNC Park, the Pirate Parrot entertains fans from the field with fun and engaging games and activities. Each winner of the "Moe's Pirate Parrot Sidekick" will have the opportunity to assist the Parrot during his time on the field and join in on the fun.

One winner will be chosen for each regular season game (81 total) to be guests of the Pirates and Moe's at PNC Park.
