After poor weather canceled the Grand Opening last year, organizers have penciled in (Saturday) May 31 as the major kick off for the All-Wheel Park located in Rosemont.

The Official Opening Ceremony concludes a 12-year odyssey by the local skateboarding advocates, Kootenay Lake Outdoor Skatepark Society (KLOSP) and Daybreak Rotary.

The ceremony begins with local dignitaries conducting the official opening at noon before Tribute, a major local sponsor for the day, offers up Pro skaters from all over the country.

Highlighting the afternoon is a performance by local Nelson product Drew Summersides, who has been featured in the current Concrete Skate Mag.

There will also be a Pro Demo and Skating with the Pro’s thereafter, all to the tunes of DJ Digs.

Refreshments will be available with proceeds going to the ongoing park development fund (donations welcomed).

The well-deserved celebration will be on deck at the park starting at Noon and go to 4 p.m. – rain or shine.

Fun contests and photo snapping and filming opportunities will abound all afternoon.
