Playful Productions is proud to sponsor the 2012 NYC Unicycle Festival, three days of one-wheel madness!

 

The city‘s third annual unicycle festival rolls into town Labor Day weekend. The growing popularity of this quirky pastime, combined with the City‘s initiatives to encourage cycling, make this a timely opportunity to celebrate the unicycle. Last year‘s festival brought over 300 riders to the Big Apple; even more one wheelers are expected for this year's event.

 

Produced by Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts, Inc., the New York City Unicycle Festival brings together recreational riders, world-class performers, mountain and off-road unicycle enthusiasts, mono-wheel vehicle inventors, and thousands of people who have not ridden in umpteen years, along with circus enthusiasts, extreme sports viewers, and anyone seeking an unusual sight—even for NYC!

 

All ages and abilities welcome.
