We're taking over the corner of Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard for a casual and Vegas-style street skateboarding contest with some of your favorite invited pros and ams. From Chris Haslam to Daewon Song to a large part of the DC crew to locals in Vegas like PIP hanging out and skating, it's going to be one ripping day in the desert. Things get going at 4pm, with the Contest starting at 6pm, along with live music entertainment. Taking Back Sunday is performing with Mini Death and Idlehands. Afterwards, we'll see you at The Griffin, Sean Eaton's bar down the street. Damn, what a day and night that's going to be??? It's wide open for all ages and completely free, too. I hope to see you there.
