34th Annual Pinball EXPO Today-Saturday in Wheeling

The 34th Annual Pinball EXPO rolls in The Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling today-Saturday. The Pinball Expo is the brain child of Rob Berk who grew up playing pinball. His dream was to recognize his heroes – the pinball designers and artists that created the games he loved. With the help of Bill Kurtz and Mike Pacak, Pinball Expo became a reality taking place in Chicago, the home of pinball. Founded in 1985, Pinball Expo is the longest-running event dedicated to pinball.
