Balmoral Park

Balmoral Park (7/6/12)

Contact: Ken Churilla
(708) 672-1414


In the spirit of summer (and the best bad movie of the '80s “Malibu Bikini Shop”) Balmoral Park is making beachwear part of the annual Balmoral Beach Party with the inaugural BALMORAL PARK SWIMSUIT CONTEST.

Bathing beauties are invited to submit a photo of themselves in a swimsuit via the Balmoral Park Facebook page ( along with their name, hometown, phone, email, and birthdate. Deadline for entries is July 16.

Swimsuits can be of the one or two piece variety and contestants need only be 18 years of age to enter.

All entries will be posted and voting will take place from July 13 – July 18.

The five contestants that garner the most votes will be invited to appear onsite at the Balmoral Beach Party on July 21 where one winner will be crowned champion and awarded $250! The four runners up will each receive $50.

“We’ve always placed a high priority on long legs winning money at the track, only up until now it’s been limited to the horses,” laughed Director of Marketing Ken Churilla. “This is just a fun way of bringing a little bit more of the beach to the Balmoral Park Beach Party and who doesn’t love the beach? Plus in the spirit of Chicago the way to get to the finals is to get people to vote for you – early and often!”

Complete contest rules are available on Balmoral Park’s home website of
