Every Year since 2007, TBOX has begun and ended with Opening and Closing Ceremonies (just like the OLYMPICS!!) at the Cubby Bear, and before THAT, we had Opening Ceremonies underneath the El Tracks outside Chris Festa’s apartment from 2002-2006. The Opening Ceremonies are one of the most fun, exciting, high-energy parts of the TBOX experience – and a chance for the first 2000 people who show up early to all be together before we disperse among Wrigleyville.
At the Opening Ceremonies, all the TBOX VIPs and Royal Court members are there, you have the chance to get the MOST STICKERS, the MOST CEREAL, there’s music, entertainment, official photographers, and it’s an amazing kickoff for a long day of partying.
Then, the people who make it all day come BACK to Cubby Bear for Closing Ceremonies, where we have a live band play and we officially complete the day of TBOX, and for those who were at both morning and evening ceremonies, it means you went “Wire to Wire” and officially did the whole crawl!
