Halloween at Burnside 2018 Photos

The Burnside Skatepark celebrated its 28th birthday this year and the party was one of the biggest ones yet. A little rain didn't stop any of the festivities and the music and skating went on late into the night. Big thanks to all the OGs who built the park and to the people who take care of it today. Rest in Peace, Mark Hubbard. We all missed you this year.
