The Pink Motel is a place of lure and legend and has become host to an annual music and skate extravaganza known as Shred Fest!! Lined up and stacked, the bands and skaters come for glory, (and $7500 in cash prizes) leaving blood, sweat, wheel marks and memories cemented into the ongoing history of the Pink Motel.
