Delridge Day countdown: Saturday’s festival will be the wheel thing

Continuing our countdown to Saturday’s seventh annual Delridge Day festival – today’s updates are all on wheels!

SKATE COMPETITION: Organizers have just announced the prizes:

The skate competition committee just added a great new feature to round out this already amazing event! Groms 12 and under open clinic/skate jam for new skateboarders from 10 am-11 am. This is sponsored by Skate Like a Girl! The best part is, the top skaters will be entered into the skate competition without a fee. Parents must be present for release-form signage.

*Prizes for the Pro/Am portion of the competition are: 1st place: $300, 2nd place: $150 and 3rd place: $50.

*Prizes for the Master’s competition for ages 40+: 1st place: Arbor Longboard, 2nd place: Tony Alva Signature complete skateboard and 3rd place: a padset.

*Prizes for Women’s 13+ competition are: 1st place: Arbor Zeppelin Longboard, 2nd place: Pruno complete skateboard and 3rd place: clothing from Casual Industrees.

*Prizes for Men’s 13+ are: 1st place: DB Duch DH Longboard, 2nd place: Pruno Complete skateboard and 3rd place: skate deck and Casual Industrees t-shirt.

*Prizes for Groms 12 and under are: 1st place: Creature complete skateboard, 2nd place: skate deck and Casual Industrees t-shirt and 3rd place: skate deck.

Not registered for the skate competition yet? Signups on site on Saturday will start at 9; competition starts at 10.

DIY BIKES: Ride your bike to Delridge Day! Alki Bike and Board‘s Stu Hennessey sends an update on DIY (Delridge Inspires Youth) Bikes, which usually has a bike-repair work party at Youngstown on Sundays, but this weekend will instead be at the DD festival on Saturday – you can bring your bicycle(s) for basic maintenance, cleaning, and lubing, Stu says.

Delridge Day is lasting longer this year – 11 am to 4 pm (but as noted above, skating begins at 10) – in and around the Delridge Community Center/Park/Skatepark, between 26th SW and Delridge Way, south of Genesee. See the schedule for entertainment and family games by going here; you’ll also find more than 70 community groups and businesses with booths and tables in the park (including WSB, since we’re a festival co-sponsor; see you there!).

    Weather should not be a factor. This is West Seattle’s’ largest neighborhood celebration with a TON of things going on. $500 in cash prizes for the Pro/Am skate competition up for grabs.

Sorry, comment time is over.
