Teens will hit the ramps of Pinjarra Skate Park between 4:00pm and 9:00pm on Saturday 14 April for the 2018 Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest.
Major event drawcard the Freestyle Now Skate, Scooter and BMX competition, returns in 2018 for round four of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series.
Skate, scooter and BMX enthusiasts can enter into beginner, intermediate or open class categories.
Registrations are essential and can be completed online at freestylenow.net/coming-events or from 3:00pm on event day. Helmets are also essential.
According to Shire President Cr. David Bolt, the competition offers a platform for local youth to demonstrate and be recognised for their skills, and is a great opportunity for the Shire to entice young people from outside the region, to experience the wonders of Murray.
The Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest will also feature a virtual reality tent, skateboard design workshop, POSCA art activities, youth service displays and a variety of food trucks.
For the budding artist, creatives from Graphite Crew will host an Urban Street Art Sesh workshop, coaching attendees through the production of intricate aerosol designs.
“The event encourages teamwork, sportsmanship and perseverance and is a productive outlet for popular youth pastimes,” Cr. Bolt said.
According to Kaitie Worthington, chairperson of the myVoice Youth Reference Group, the popular youth event will not disappoint.
The Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest is an official event of the 2018 Youth Week and is a smoke, alcohol and drug free event.
