Yo-Yo Open 2009 -- This is Not a Joke
If you haven't yet made your weekend plans, you're in luck!
The 3rd Annual International Yo-Yo Open is coming to town -- if your town happens to be New York City.
The world's best yo-yo players land tomorrow night to start competing in the preliminaries. The real event to watch, however, takes place on Saturday at South Street Seaport where you can watch the crowning of the yo-yo champions following the finals.
Spectators can also check out live music, DJs, breakdancers, jugglers, and spin-top, diabolo performers, mini-contests, giveaways, and, of course, test out the latest and greatest in yo-yo equipment.
It's a walk down nostalgia lane and a chance to openly and unabashedly indulge in a great pastime.
