Civic Center Skateboard Fest


Last weekend, a major soft drink company took over S.F.’s Civic Center Plaza for a promotional event. They built ramps for skateboarders and BMX bikers.

There was a special area for the young ‘boarders, who were all wearing the proper safety equipment.

If you click on this picture it will embiggen, and you will see that this young fellow decorated his board with a decal of the guy that teaches painting on educational television. He often uses the phrase ‘fluffy little clouds’.

Athletes from all over competed on the slackline.


The soft drink company paid the S.F. parks department $311,000 for this deal. The parks department needs the dough, and the kids had a lot of fun, so it’s a win-win. A splendid time was had by all.
