If you’re going to Viva La Gong on the weekend, here’s an opportunity to ‘Get your skate on’!
As the battle for a skate park in the Northern Illawarra continues, the Northern Illawarra Skateboarder’s Alliance is calling on all skaters and supporters to join them in the festival parade, marching in support of their cause.
They’ll also set up a pop-up-skate-ramp at the festival. “The aim,” says NISA founder Glen Beadman, “is to have as many participants as possible taking part, to showcase the need and support for more skateparks in the Illawarra, particularly in Thirroul.”
The mini-ramp will be set up in McCabe Park as part of the festival. There will be coaching clinics for the kids and free skating throughout the day.
If you’re keen to take part in the parade, please gather at the Arts Precinct on Borelli Street at 10am on Saturday. If you march, you get first shot at the mini-ramp!
