Independence Day, BKB-style!
Jun 29, 2015
There are few things we love more than throwing an off-the-wall event for our members and visitors, and we’re planning an epic event THIS WEDNESDAY to jumpstart July and kick off the Independence Day weekend.
Fourth on the 1st
Wednesday, July 1st – 6 to 9PM
FREE to members or with the cost of a day pass
Say hello to Fourth on the 1st, Brooklyn Boulders Chicago’s first annual Independence Day kickoff. Like our best events, we aim to provide a perfect mix of climbing activities and comps, regional traditions, and local and national vendors. So what’s in store for Fourth on the 1st?
CRATE STACKING IS BACK
We’re bringing our insane crate-stacking competition back for this Wednesday’s event. Remember how truly epic our first competition went? BKB visitors were hesitant to jump into the action … until they finally saw it for themselves. Like last time, winners will receive special prizes from one of our event sponsors. We can’t spill the beans just yet. We like to keep some things as a surprise.
It wouldn’t be the summer without a little BAGS and we’ve created custom BKB platforms for our first BAGS tournament. Take a break from your climbing to win big in everyone’s favorite pastime.
FILL ‘EM UP!
What’s the perfect summer treat? Ice cream, of course. And our friends at Cone Gourmet Ice Cream will be parked in our lot selling their delicious, seasonal flavors. They even helped us with the image for this event, so if you’re looking to recreate our red, white, and blue creation, make sure you grab some strawberry and cookie monster (our personal favorite). PowerBar will also be in the facility offering samples to keep you fueled and climbing.
