Calling all pinball wizards: Join us for Pinballapalooza!

Pinballapalooza headerWe’re storming Toronto on May 16 to host Pinballapalooza! One hundred pinball machines will fill the main lobby of First Canadian Place (100 King Street West, Toronto) for a special promotion of the Festival’s 2013 production of Tommy

Join us any time between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. for a free game, as well as performances by members of the cast of Tommy at 12:15 and 1:15 at the Waterfall Stage.

The Festival plans to set a world record with this event – so come out, have fun, and help make history!

It’s going to be a busy day and we want to make sure that we have some exclusive play time for our social media fans. From 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon we’ll be holding 50 pinball machines for our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and Pinterest followers. Of course you can come any time during the day, but if you join us during the social media free play time slot you’ll have more time to enjoy the pinball machines and a chance to win our prize package!

We will be giving away an amazing (and we mean amazing!) prize package from Gibson Sound & Vision that includes a Samsung SMART CAMERA NX1000 (with built in Wi-Fi), a Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 and a premium pair of tickets to our 2013 production of Tommy!
