Triple Crown Chicago
July 27 & 28, 2012
The Triple Crown of YoYo will take place on July 28th in Millennium Park in Chicago. Hosting over 525 free events each year, Millennium Park is an award-winning center for art, music, architecture and landscape design. Since opening in July 2004, the Park has had millions of visitors, making it one of the most popular local, national and international destinations. The result of a unique partnership between the City of Chicago and the philanthropic community, the 24.5-acre park features the work of world-renowned architects, planners, artists and designers.
Preliminaries will take place on Friday, July 27th, at the Holiday Inn Downtown.
Prelims will be held from 5 PM – 11 PM on Friday, July 27th at the Holiday Inn – Downtown at 506 West Harrison Street. Competitors will perform their 2-minute freestyles for the judges in a private setting, without other contestants watching. This means that contestants DO NOT need to prepare a separate freestyle for prelims, and can simply focus on their 2-minute freestyle for finals!
Pick Your Trick and the Amateur Freestyle division will be held on Saturday.
Finals will be held on Saturday, July 28th from 10 am until 4 pm at Millennium Park. Finals will be 2 minute freestyle with a lunch break in the afternoon.
The official contest hotel is the Holiday Inn Downtown. We’ve negotiated a special room rate of only $139/night for up to 4 people per room. To book, please use this link or promotional code “YO2″.
