The Dew Tour Invades the New Grant Park Skate Park

The new skate park in Grant Park (just east of the Agora statues) has surprisingly exceeded our expectations.  It opened back in December of 2014 and when the weather isn't crappy, it seems to be packed with skillful people of all ages trying some new tricks.

Well this weekend, the pros are taking over as the Dew Tour invades the Sloop.  NBC5 Chicago has a nice feature on the event:

For more information you can check out the following link.  Entry is free and it begins today (6/20) at noon and goes until 8pm.  It restarts at 10am on Sunday (6/21) and concludes at 6pm.

Parts of the event will also be broadcast on NBC nationwide, so should be nice for the city to get some scenic PR.
