Go Skateboarding Day
Go Skateboarding Day is always a good time to head out en masse with your friends. If you’ve got an event in your local area we’d thoroughly recommend going along, support the local scene, have a skate, and more importantly, have a laugh! Here’s a round-up of the events happening in the Parade community.
On Friday 21st June Slam City Skates will be hosting a jam at Raemers Skatepark (Victoria Park), to celebrate the life of Ben Raemers. The jam will start at 3:30 pm, there will be special guest riders for you to marvel at, as well as a shed load of prizes to be won.
Fifty Fifty will be hosting Go Skateboarding Day fun and games at Dean Lane from 5 pm on Friday 21st June. Slappies, slashers and stubbies, plenties of prizes to be won. There will also be a fundraiser for the family of Ben Raemers, or a charity of the family’s choosing.
We’re unsure if this is strictly speaking a Go Skateboarding Day event, but it’s for an incredibly worthy cause. Send It For Jack will take place at 4motion Skatepark from 7-10pm on Saturday 22nd June, all money raised will be donated to the family of Jack Daykin. Big up Legacy Skatestore.
