[Video] Chi-Town Rising 2016: Making the Star

Posted by Flyhouse on Jun 20, 2016 11:53:03 AM

For years, New York City was home to the only New Year's Eve event worth mentioning. To ring in 2016, Chi-Town Rising was born and Chicago Flyhouse was honored to be a part of the festivities.

Chicago Flyhouse fabricated a custom hoist system to lift the countdown star up the side of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Chicago to help ring in the New Year. 

How did we make it happen? The wonderful people at Doejo followed Flyhouse during the process and results are below in the detailed video.
