Burnside Skatepark Celebrates 28 Years of DIY on Halloween.

Burnside Skatepark 28 Year Anniversary was a continuing tradition of skateboarding and gathering of locals from every generation that the park has amassed since its inception. Dressed in costumes and loaded up on excitement, the park always exceeds expectations in the skate session category.

The addition of lights a couple of years ago facilitated over 12 hours of non-stop skateboarding, and the park had full decks with energized souls ready to drop in and get their piece of the action. Ten bands performed for over 10 hours of amped up live music on sound systems that left ears ringing by the end of the night. The speakers were bigger this year and so was the crowd, growing in size as the day progressed into night.

When the sun went down, the festivities fired up, and fire dancers and more freaks and geeks appeared, along with the mistresses of the dark. Bridge trolls lurked from the shadows to rage for the one day of the year where they can blend in and anything can look normal. The D.I.Y. mentality and Skate Army was in full force with many fixtures of Burnside coming together for the movement and concrete celebration. Words can barely describe the orchestra of chaos enjoyed by all.

It all started 28 years ago and still stands strong today as much as in the beginning. The mantra was there long before the beginning in the minds, blood and hearts of skateboarding’s lifestyle and culture. Today, everlasting inspirational fires burn across the universe manifesting new visions, terrain and spots from and for riders of the board. Make dreams into reality and create your future because the unbelievable is achievable. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. Trowel your own path to ride into the future.

In honor of the great Dorfus, Monk and P-Stone, an epic mural by Jaymeer.

Rest in Power to our fallen comrades and leaders, knowing that we will carry the torch and keep it lit forever! Big plans are in our future and yours. Thanks to everyone that donates and pitches in. We stay strong together Skate Family.

100% self maintained by locals the Burnside Project is an ongoing situation. Feel free to donate to the Non-Profit foundation via www.gofundme.com/Burnside

Some funds since the 25 year major fundraiser are still on ice although much has been spent on concrete additions / renovations, and we still have a final large section of the park that will take time to complete.
