2015 NYC Unicycle Festival in the News

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Photo courtesy of Metro - New York Edition"][/caption] Reporter, Chester Soria put together an excellent write up for this year's Unicycle Festival that made the front page of the September 8th New York edition of the   Metro newspaper. I exited the subway this morning and grabbed a copy of the free news paper, folded it and slipped in my shoulder bag. When I got into my office I was pleasantly surprised to see a unicycle gracing  the front page. Over the last 5 years the festival has made the front page of many of the local borough wide papers.  For last year's festival there was this article in the New York Daily News written by by Doyle Murphy.  However, this year has been the first time  that I recall the festival making the front page of a city wide distributed newspaper. Check out the Metro article and the slide show of photos taken for Brooklyn Unicycle day.

She actually used a photo from the 2014 Unicycle Festival in order to make the deadline for Thursday's paper. But that is okay since the same two boys in the photo, Harry and Ziggy, had a rematch during this year's festival.

They also posted a 2014 sumo contest photo this time with two of the festivals dedicated volunteer staffers going at it. If there are additional articles released in this weeks local papers, I will add them to this post so return to our website and check them out. In the meantime there are plenty of photographs for you to check out in the links included in my previous posts.
