At the event there was much to offer for a fun day out. There was a live art wall, food and drink, a skateboarding competition, prizes and music. Skaters who entered the competition were able to try and win new skateboards, t-shirts and more.
Part one of the jam was a day event from 12pm until 7pm in which people all ages and families came together to support Scene Preston and have fun at the event.
Chris Davison, the owner of Scene Preston said: “It’s a good turnout and I thank everyone from coming.”
Other people said: “It’s amazing seeing all these people and people being considerate of others and it’s a great community atmosphere.
“It’s great, it’s just really nice to see all different ages and its good fun and really good for the community.”
“It’s very crowded but very fun.”
Bob Frost who helped design the Skate Park as part of Preston Skate Park projects said: “It’s just great to celebrate 20 years of the shop but this year it’s a big anniversary of Moor Park as well. It’s a pretty good turnout and a lot of people have come over and it’s stayed nice and dry today.
“It’s been a really good day, good to get everyone out and be a good community and get to chill and skate.”
An artist from The Cunning Craftsman said: “It’s always good, we love doing it. I’ve been painting with Scene since they’ve opened and we thought it would do something fun and skate themed so people can be inspired by it.”
“It’s a good chance for the community to all come together, it’s a great celebration and good use of the park. You can just forget about everything and have fun and the weather has held as well.”
The second part of the event will be at Blitz nightclub from 10pm until 6am.
