Irrigon Goes On-line

Cement Head @ Irrigon

Sometimes it’s like a bad 70’s wine commercial around here with respect to getting the story out. Something like we will show no photos before their time. Well the time has come to liberate a few photos from the opening weekend at the Irrigon Skatepark.

Irrigon Crowd

As far as skatepark openings go, the town of Irrigon did it right. A crowd of approximately 300 folks took in the festivities that included a park dedication, performances by local elementary kids, a product toss and some great skating.

School Kids Sing @ Irrrigon

The local school kids were totally stoked with their new park. So much so, they wrote and performed a song about skateboarding. In all the skatepark openings that we have been to, this was a first. Too bad Clay Wheels hadn’t arrived yet to give them a little instrumental backup.

Ditch Session @ Irrigon

Quickly following all the formal park dedication events came the shred-fest. Check out Danny, Lance, Jesse, Shawn, Chet, Tobin, Brogan and a few locals as they get their skate on.
