Giveaway: Family Pass for CHITAG

You know how there are these great conferences and exhibitions for candy and toys and games that you see on the news or hear about? And you know how you are always jealous because you can't go yourself?

Well, now you can. The Chicago Toy and Game Fair (CHITAG)is the only toy and game fair open to the public, and it's coming to Navy Pier November 20 and 21. You'll be able to check out some of the newest toys and games for yourself, in addition to seminars and live entertainment. Plus, the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile will be there. What else could you want?

Have you ever wanted to be part of a giant game? The new game Wobble has a gigantic board where players use their own body weight to control where the ball rolls. There are fantastic events happening all weekend long sure to have something that appeals to everyone.

Interested in going? It runs 10am-6pm on Saturday November 20 at Navy Pier and 10am-5pm on Sunday November 21. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Parking is available at Navy Pier, or you can get there easily via Chicago's public transportation.
