Zumiez Skateboarding Championships

When: Sat., Aug. 9, 2 p.m. 2014

After some extreme-sports enthusiasts released a video of guys skateboarding, motorbiking and BMX-ing through Detroit, Zumiez decided to bring their Best Foot Forward national skateboarding championships to the Motor City. Watch as 37 winning regional amateurs compete in a skate park built inside the old Michigan Theatre building. The theater will be retrofitted as a skate park all within a 48-hour window. And this temporary skate park won't be made of wood- they're pouring concrete. In addition to the skateboarding contest, the event will feature performances from punk bands Death and Trash Talk.
