Gloving is more than just a hobby, it’s a way of life for some. The energy of performing a light show is as enjoyable as the music people go to enjoy, and finally there’s a place for glovers to come together and compete.

This year, Emazing Lights will host the 5th annual International Gloving Championship. The company finished its first national BOSS Gloving Competition this year, but there’s nothing that can compare to the IGC. Glovers from around the world gather for the largest event of the year, which features multiple regional rounds and the final “Legends Tournament.” This is only the second year of the 16-man, single-elimination tournament.

Current champion Ice Kream Teddy will defend his title against glovers from California, Texas, New Jersey, Florida, and more for a $1000 cash prize and other goodies from Emazing Lights. As if the competition wasn’t enough, DJ Bear Grillz will also be performing at the event in-between matches.

Whether you’re an avid glover yourself, or just someone fascinated by performers, you should definitely make plans to head to the Yost Theatre on Saturday, October 10, to check it all out. For tickets and more information, head to Emazing Lights’ website.
