Share Article

Lion Brand Yarn Studio will ask questions about its Coney Island window display and give a cash prize to the person who answers most questions correctly.

Lion Brand Yarn Studio, the retail store of Lion Brand Yarn Company, commissioned an artist to design a yarncrafted window display portraying Coney Island. Those who want to participate in a Coney Island competition in July, but can’t stomach 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes, can answer trivia questions about the window display in order to win a $250 cash prize. All entrants will receive a free gift!

The Coney Island window display, which is made almost entirely of yarn, includes the Cyclone, Wonder Wheel, Parachute Jump, and more, complete with knit finger puppet riders. To enter the contest, individuals will have to answer a list of questions about the window display. The answers must be turned in to a Studio staff member during regular store hours. Everyone who enters the contest by turning in answers to a staff member will receive a Lion Brand tote bag. The person who answers the most questions correctly will win $250. In the case of a tie, the individual who turned in answers first will be the winner.

The contest will run from July 1- 30, 2010. The questions will be available at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio Blog (click here on or after July 1 to see the post), but answers must be given to a Lion Brand Yarn Studio staff member. The unique Coney Island window display can be seen through August 31 at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio at 34 W. 15th St.
