Chicago's McCormick Place
Main Convention Hall.
If you made it out last year, you know the size of this event is immense!
Larger than last year, the total event will occupy the ENTIRE McCormick
place South AND North floors. Huge.
This is called the Holiday Sports Festival and is run by the Mayors Office
of Special Events. We will have subflooring (like the Volleyball had last
year) for 2 net courts AND still more for the freestylers. There is a giant
banner being hung from the 50' ceiling that says "FOOTBAG" and we are
included in this years program as an official event. There will be the
Harlem Globetrotters and some of the Bulls at the Basketball area,
there is soccer, baseball, fishing and many other events going on all
Reduced ($5) Parking at adjacent lot to event. (Usually $10 per car, it is
extremely rare that they reduce the parking rates at the convention
parking lots, we are thankful for this)
If you are coming into town and want to stay in a hotel, we are arranging
a deal at the Hyatt. If you want to save money and stay at one of our host
homes, please contact us ASAP, first come first served (we have lots of
space though). See above paragraph for hotel info.
The City of Chicago Web Site for Holiday Sports Fest is:
Mayors Office of Special Events, McCormick-Pier Authority and
Communications Direct (Eric Cokee).
Stay tuned for more information!
