The much-anticipated Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest will return to the ramps of Pinjarra Skate Park from 3:00pm to 8:00pm on Saturday 13 April, 2019.
Skate, scooter and BMX enthusiasts can enter into beginner, intermediate or open class categories as part of the event’s major drawcard, the Freestyle Now Skate, Scooter and BMX competition.
Registrations are essential and can be completed online at freestylenow.net/coming-events or from 2:30pm on event day. Helmets are compulsory.
According to Shire President Cr. David Bolt, the annual event encourages sportsmanship, perseverance and creativity, and is a great opportunity for the Shire to entice young people from outside the region, to experience the vibrancy of Murray.
“Whilst providing a platform for young people to demonstrate and be recognised for their skate, scooter or BMX skills, the event also provides opportunity for attendees to interact with youth service providers,” Cr, Bolt said.
The Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest will also feature skateboard deck design, a POSCA art workshop, youth hang-out zone, Peel Bright Minds robotics and technology display, parkour workshop and a variety of food trucks.
For attendees wishing to exercise their artistic talents, creatives from Graphite Crew will host an Urban Art workshop, coaching attendees through the production of intricate aerosol designs.
The Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest is an official event of the 2019 Youth Week and is a smoke, alcohol and drug free event.
