Finally, Something for the Kids in West Kendall: Skateboard Rodeo at West Wind Lakes Skatepark This Weekend
On schedule for the weekend's festivities are a $300 best trick contest, a longboard death race, punk rock flea market, live bands on Saturday and Sunday, DJs, mechanical bulls, BBQ, hot rods, and a shitload more of stuff that will surely entertain and delight all age groups. Hell, maybe pops will try to show off and teach you that perfect no-comply he's been talking about for ages.
This is clearly a time-tested recipe for fun. And since this is more for fun and community than money, peeps who just want to enjoy the atmosphere can pay a miserable three bucks while skaters can pay a fiver. The contest does require a $10 participation fee, but that's peanuts if you compare that to the hassle of making it out the beach and finding a decent parking spot.
Enough!, Kid Chameleon, DJ Amado and more. 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, June 18 through Sunday, June 20. West Wind Lakes Skatepark, 6805 SW 152nd Ave., Miami (Kendall.) 305-388-4771; sugarsdropshop.com
