'Pokemon Go' Is Kicking Off Summer With A Giant Party In Chicago
From Uproxx - June 8, 2017

Its summer, and that means many of us are returning to Pokemon Go. So, to welcome them back, and to kick off prime Pokehunting season, the game is holding its first live event, and kicking off summer with a lot more walking.

First off, the game is holding its first official live meetup July 22nd in Chicagos Grant Park, and youll need a ticket, which will go on sale June 19th. They havent revealed prices yet, but expect it to be a bit costly. The idea of the vast meetup is to bring trainers together and have some special events to push the game further. For the rest of us, starting next week on Tuesday, there will be a double XP event called the Summer Solstice with higher chances of finding Fire and Ice type Pokemon, which will run until June 20th. Also, gyms are getting an upgrade, so in the meantime, theyll be closed for repairs.
