Canada’s Hottest Beach Festival, the Monster Energy Center of Gravity (MECOG) is coming back for its 9th year. From the 8th to the 10th of July, Canadians and people from all over the world will be gathered on the beautiful shores of the Okanagan Lake and Kelowna’s City Park for another yet action packed festival of sports, music & bikinis on beautiful sandy beaches.
Wild In The Parks is for young up and coming skaters to come out and show their skills. Think of the event like a best trick contest; skaters are judged on the tricks they pull, never on their bails. Wild In The Parks is about giving back to the skaters and the communities that support them. With this in mind, the series is entirely free. There are absolutely no entry fees, so anyone can enter. There are three main divisions: 14 & Under, 15 & Over and Open (pro-am). New to 2012-2013 the Wild In The Parks has added special awards for the “Stand Out 10 & Under” And “Stand Out Lady” to get the full spectrum of representation. Free lunch is provided to all competitors and prizes are awarded in all categories; including $500 cash for the Open division! Volcom also invites the top 7 in each division to compete at the $15,000 Wild In The Parks Championships in Costa Mesa, CA October 19th 2013.
Come hang out, eat some free food, rock out, and skate away with some free gear while having a great time and supporting the local scene! Spectators are welcome!
