6 Corners BBQ Fest

June 16, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 12:00 am


A Guinness World Record will be broken at this year’s 6 Corners BBQ Fest, but we need your help to do it. Come to the Portage Theater, 4050 N. Milwaukee Ave., at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, and wear your sunglasses.

We will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the most people wearing sunglasses in the dark. This registered world record attempt coincides with the annual 6 Corner’s BBQ Street Festival held over Father’s Day weekend and seeks to create a fun family event that will promote the Portage Theater and the Portage Park community.

Singer/songwriter Corey Hart will introduce the event and lead into his 1983 cult top 10 classic “Sunglasses at Night”. An additional
performance will follow by a local dance group with glow in the dark

The event is free and accessed through the main gate of the BBQ
festival. Bring your sunglasses! Seats are limited! Everyone who attends will receive a souvenir gift to commemorate their participation in the event.
