10th Hairy Bob's 'Jamiversary' At Scarborough Skatepark

10th Hairy Bob's 'Jamiversary' At Scarborough Skatepark

Published by Karen Liu at 7:02am 18th August 2019.

Today is the 10th year of Hairy Bob's Jamiversary in Scarborough. 

It is being held at the skate park on Marine Drive from 12pm until 5pm.

The free event is being hosted by a Scarborough-based youth work charity called Sidewalk. 

Its Project Manager, Steve Blower, said:

"We're hoping it's going to be a really exciting day, marking it in a special way.

We've got thousands of pounds of prizes; we've got live bands, DJs and food.

It's going to be a really big family event and there'll be lots of riders coming to show off their skills, and we've got people coming from all over the country.

One of the special things about the 'jam' is that it's a way of remembering and celebrating what a great resource the skate park is.

About ten years ago, some young people decided they wanted to develop more resources for them and their peers.

They worked really, really hard over a number of years to get this skate park built."

There are also dedicated sessions for skaters, riders, scooterers and bladers.
