The Andover Skatepark is hosting an events all day and night for go skateboarding day. Do the full 24 hours or just hang out for an hour or two. If you haven't been there, the park is fun with a good mix of tranny and street stuff. Check our myspace for some picures of the park. There will be different events and contests going on all day. It is $10.00 for admission to the park for the day. If you'd like to enter any of the contests please contact one of the guys at Andover Youth Services (info below) because I can't figure out how to change a pdf to an image file. I'm sure they'll email you the info. All the money from admission and contest entry fees goes to maintaining the park and making future improvements. Hope to see you there and remember to bring a helmet.

What: The Paul King Memorial Skate-Thon is a fundraiser to raise money for a new ramp and repairs to the Andover Community Skate Park. Paul King envisioned a skate-a-thon to raise money for the park, but sadly, he passed away before that could become a reality. So a group of his family, friends and fellow skaters are carrying out his dream in his honor. The goal is to raise $100,000. Thanks to Converse, we have already raised $50,000.

What else: The skate-a-thon will be a festival full of skateboard and inline skatingcontests, music by disc jockeys from WBCN and local bands, ultimate Frisbee, street hockey, basketball, food and raffles. There will be something for everyone.
