Last weekend will go down in history as one of the best events we had the pleasure of collaborating this year. KIDCON is the biggest playground for kids aged 3-12 years old with over 75,000 square feet of everything you can imagine for children. It’s like the WIlly Wonka of activities and this year for the first time, SKATEBOARDING was front and centre. (October 22+23rd at Uniprix Stadium)
Our youngest Ambassadors aged 3-8 years old put on the biggest, baddest show for two full days of skateboarding. The crowds cheered on our little ones as they took turns showing their skills on the SPIN CITY SKATEPARK Half-pipe that was installed graciously for the event. Two well known instructors who are actually World Cup Skateboarding Champion from Montreal, Annie Guglia and Nick taught children how to roll out and our 2 Skateboards For Hope Ambassadors, Frederique Luyet and Justin Darrow volunteered their talents too. Parents of Emeric Lefebvre (6yrs), Eli Lefebvre (3yrs), Lily-Rose Chouinard (6yrs), Liam Sayegh-Letourneau(8yrs) and Jayden Sauve(4yrs) also did their part by showing how Fathers and Mothers skateboard with their children. It’s certainly a family affair and we are so happy to inspire Montreal families too. Special thanks to our volunteers Margot McManus and Esau Gaitan for lending us a hand.
Our skaters were relentless. They seemed to feed off the energy they got from the crowd of children and parents who ooohed and aaahed the whole time they dropped in at full speed or landed tricks on the rail.
We certainly enjoyed our time and felt like part of the KIDCON Family. If you haven’t had a chance to attend this unique event, trust me you won’t want to miss it in 2017. Save the date for October 2017 on your calendar, Apple Watch or old school agenda. It’s worth the eternal love fo your child. (Seriously, you’ll thank us later!)
Here are some awesome black and white photos from Petite Peste Photography. (We love what they do so check out their website and maybe commission them for your children’s photos) WEB Link: Petite Pest Photo
