SKATE JAM AND TEA TUESDAYS + PLACE DE LA PAIX'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY
Information on the activity
August 19, 2014 to September 20, 2014
The Society for Arts and Technology [SAT], the Quartier des spectacles and the arrondissement de Ville-Marie, with collaboration from David "Boots" Bouthillier, are proud to announce the start of a pilot project that legalizes skateboarding at Peace Park / the place de la Paix until September 26.
The project offers skaters a series of four special events! Starting with Skate Jam Tuesdays (August 19, August 26 and September 2), the festivities will reach their peak with the celebration of Peace Park’s 20th anniversary. On the schedule for this final event: skate competitions, DJs, food, music performances, and the screening of a film presenting Peace Park’s highlights, all of this with, as guests, some non-profits working in the neighbourhood.
More than a glimpse of how skateboarding can be a viable practice in the heart of the city, with this project we want to show the positive impact skaters can have by mixing the neighbourhood’s vibrant energy with Peace Park’s community spirit.
Events open to all, come and join us!
