I’m sure it’s old news at this point that Niantic and fans of Pokemon GO all around the world are celebrating the games one year anniversary, but what isn’t old news is the Sault Ste. Marie Pokemon GO Festival taking place this weekend on July 22nd in Clergue Park. Starting at 9 a.m EST, Pokestops all over the park will be lured up until 5 p.m, giving you a great opportunity to hang out and catch some rare Pokemon.
“Throughout the day, trainers (in Chicago) will be able to participate in three Challenge Window activities, where they must work together to catch certain types of Pokémon in order to unlock a variety of perks for Pokémon GO players around the world. Trainers outside of Chicago will be able to participate in the festivities by catching as many Pokémon as possible during these Challenge Windows to extend the duration of bonuses unlocked by those attending Pokémon GO Fest. If Trainers around the world catch enough Pokémon, a Mystery Challenge will be revealed at Pokémon GO Fest Chicago for the potential to unlock an extra-special bonus across the globe.”
