Snow fills Fremont Street from Las Vegas Boulevard to 6th Street on January 23 for the second annual Park Jam snowboard competition. For you Vegas natives, snow is frozen water vapor that forms white ice crystal flakes. It’s cold.
Anyway, 25 riders will be judged on the best trick they can pull off in 45 minutes on a massive 30-foot tall rail structure. The winner snags $5,000. Last year’s winner, Matt Schaefer, will return to defend his title.

HAROLD HUNTER DAY IX SET FOR SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4TH, AT NYC’S COLEMAN OVAL SKATEPARK ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE
NEW YORK, NY – Harold Hunter Day IX is presented by DC Shoes and the Harold Hunter Foundation, in association with supporting sponsors Zoo York, G-Shock and Skullcandy.
The ninth annual event will take place Sunday, October 4th, from Noon-6:30pm at New York City’s Coleman Oval/LES Skatepark located under the Manhattan Bridge on the corner of Pike Street and Monroe Street.
Established in 2006 after Harold’s untimely passing, and managed by the non-profit Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF), Harold Hunter Day IX will once again unite NYC’s tight-knit skate community for a positive, fun-filled day of skateboarding in memory of Harold. HH Day celebrates everything Harold cherished most—skateboarding, music, friends, family, and of course, New York City.
This year’s event will be hosted by skate industry veterans and HHF board members Jefferson Pang and Steve Rodriguez. Live music will be provided by acclaimed DJ, producer and lifelong skateboarder, TJ Mizell; son of the late, great Jam Master Jay of Run DMC.
As is the case every year, Harold Hunter Day IX will feature an all-ages skate jam with appearances by numerous top pros including DC team riders Evan Smith, Wes Kremer, Cyril Jackson, Tristan Funkhouser, among others.
Throughout the day, a variety of Best Trick Contests will be held on various skatepark obstacles with cash and prizes generously provided by DC Shoes, Zoo York and G-Shock. At the conclusion of HH Day, a massive product toss will take place featuring free skateboard decks, t-shirts, hats, stickers, and more from event sponsors.
Restaurant “Sweet Chick” will release several special edition menu items in Harold’s memory with a portion of proceeds donated to the Harold Hunter Foundation. They will be available October 2nd-18th at the Sweet Chick locations in the LES (178 Ludlow Street) and Williamsburg (164 Bedford Avenue).
Skullcandy, a longtime supporter of Harold Hunter Day, is also planning to release a limited edition, co-branded Harold Hunter Foundation portable Bluetooth speaker to commemorate this year’s event. Slated to drop later this fall, a portion of proceeds will be donated to the foundation.
As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Harold Hunter Foundation relies on financial support from the skate community and related outlets to achieve its mission of using skateboarding as a vehicle to provide inner-city youth with valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness and the development of life skills.
In an effort to raise much needed funds for Harold’s namesake foundation, several charitable projects will coincide with Harold Hunter Day IX.
