That's why we were surprised and excited to see this news yesterday come through on DNAinfo:
The Dew Tour, a nationally televised skate and BMX biking competition, is set to kick off its 2015 season June 20-21 at the new $2.7-million Grant Park Skate Park, said Bob O'Neill, president of the Grant Park Conservancy. The tour, which will be broadcast on NBC, would be the first major event for the skate park since it opened in December.Even if this might not be your cup of tea, it's another event that brings more people to the neighborhood and ultimately supports our local businesses. It will also probably be a nice way to showcase our beautiful city and skyline to a national audience.
Anyway, looking forward to seeing this event and some of the craziness that the "pros" will bring to this new park.
