Try A Kickflip Cocktail to Support Skate Raleigh

Share this Post

We’re flippin’ out for these local ’tails around town benefiting Skate Raleigh.

Roll up to one of these local bars throughout April for sips in support of Skate Raleigh that’ll have you jumping for joy. Conlon Family Skate Park is located between Capital Boulevard and Peace Street (aka the land expected to one day become Smoky Hollow Park) and construction broke ground on the park a few weeks back.

Sig Hutchinson, chair of the Wake County Board of Commissioners, emphasizes the park will not only be fun and inviting, but will also fill a need in the city. 

“Skateboarders have a hard time finding a place to do their sport, and so they tend to go places where they aren’t necessarily welcome,” he says. “This provides that opportunity to give them a safe place to practice where they can feel at home with their buddies—and they and their parents know that they’re going to be OK, and they’re going to be safe.”

And don’t forget to be all a-board April 16 at Union Station to bid on one-of-a-kind skate decks created by local artists. Ready to roll?
