The Friends of the Ann Arbor Skatepark will host a picnic at Wheeler Park in Ann Arbor on Tuesday, June 21, 4:00pm – 8:00pm in celebration of Go Skateboarding Day. Go Skateboarding Day is a grassroots holiday started in 2003 that celebrates the sport and community of skateboarding.
While Ann Arbor is not yet home to a skatepark, the Friends of the Ann Arbor Skatepark will be serving up hot dogs and snacks to hungry skaters on their way to or from area skateparks, along with raffles and prizes and a2skatepark merchandise for sale. A game of S-K-A-T-E is slated to start at 5:00pm with a Best Trick contest to follow. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED TO SKATE. CHILDREN 12 AND UNDER MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
The Friends of the Ann Arbor Skatepark was recently awarded $1,500 from the Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sweet 15 contest. Bank of Ann Arbor will be in attendance to present the award to the Friends of the Ann Arbor Skatepark board of directors.
