2014 Rossland Winter Carnival Skatepark fundraiser

The Rossland Skatepark Association will be hosting the official after party for ‘The Wild In The Streets’ jib jam competition on Saturday.

As part of this year’s Winter Carnival festivities, the Rossland Skatepark Association, in association with RossVegas, will be hosting the official after party for ‘The Wild In The Streets’ jib jam competition taking place on Saturday, Jan. 25.

When the jib jam wraps up, take the short walk down Columbia to the Miner’s Union Hall and get your rock n’ roll on in Rossland’s original party hall.

Whistler/Vancouver rock bands Fall of Summer and Virginia Leaves are coming all the way out here to rock all night and help raise money to support the local skatepark dreams.

The bands hit the stage at Miner’s Union Hall at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at RossVegas for $10, or $15 at the door.

The Rossland Skatepark Association (RSA) is the local non-profit organization working towards creating a world class skatepark in Rossland. Major hurdles have been cleared in the skatepark process, including site selection and skatepark design.

Rossland city council has given the RSA permission to construct the skatepark in 2014, at the corner of Washington Street and Third Avenue.

Like them on Facebook and get updates on the process and how to get involved.
