This week's Freedom Friday post is for the kids! At the end of the day, skateboarding will always be about getting out into the community to have fun with friends. That's why we're excited to be partnering with The East Trenton Collaborative and Trenton Parks & Recreation to bring pop-up skate events to open streets all throughout Trenton this summer. We're bringing portable obstacles as well as boards and helmets for kids to borrow. See you at an event soon!

See you next weekend!

This Saturday (November 21) we are holding our first Board Giveaway of the Trenton Winter Skateboarding Program 2020-2021! From 12:00 to 1:00 we'll be offering free skateboards and lessons on the basics of skateboarding. If you or someone you know has been thinking of trying out skateboarding but doesn't have a board, this is the day to do it!

PLEASE NOTE: Boards will be distributed first-come, first-served while supplies last. To keep all participants and volunteers safe from COVID-19, we will be capping attendance at 20, so be sure to arrive early to guarantee your spot. See you Saturday!
