Meet National and World Yo-Yo Champions, watch daredevil tricks, and learn basic techniques from yo-yo masters. This event is included in the price of admission to the Exploratorium.

In keeping with California's rich yo-yo heritage, this competition promises to be one of the best venues to witness all that is yo-yo.
