BC Youth Week kicks off this Saturday May 1 – 7, 2010 and the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition with the City of Vancouver, Douglas Park, Riley Park, and the Roundhouse Community Centres is putting on a youth-focused, family-friendly skateboard event this Saturday (1pm to 4pm, rain or shine) at the downtown Skate Plaza (Quebec and Union Street). As a one time skateboarder, I sure wished these events existed when I was a youth. So if you’re into skateboarding go and check this event out and meet up with fellow skaters.
There’s going to be a demo by the Kitsch Skateboards and Monke teams as well as music and booths. As this event gets larger every year, so has the list of sponsors – and that means more prizes for everybody!
Tons of prizes from Kitsch, Monke, Color Magazine, Real skateboards, Skull Skates, Antisocial, Vans, Boulevard skate shop, Toy Machine, Fallen Footwear, HUF, Zero Skateboards, Circa, Momentum Wheel Co., the Dry Spot indoor skatepark, Analog, Quicksilver and Native shoes. Wow! Thanks a ton to all of our sponsors supporting this youth event – nobody will walk away empty-handed that day. [source]
