Remember those kids youve been telling to get off your driveway for the past few years? Well, Grumpy, little did you know those skateboarding hooligans were actually practicing their way to four-wheeled greatness.
No one is Tony Hawk from the start, and the locals participating in Cowtown Skateboards Locals Only Skateboard Contest know it. If you have the skills (or a taste for humiliation) you can join in the competition. The Pumpkin Carving Contest (carving as in leaning one way or another to direct a board) is a death race to see who can cut up the obstacle course fastest. Not quite an expert? Divisions for the event range from pee wee to advanced, but dont bank on getting into the lowest bracket unless youre between the ages of 6 and 9.
Its free to enter, free to watch and the Cowtown folks will be doing a free raffle.
