In case you haven't heard, skateboarding is officially allowed in Montreal's Peace Park, thanks to a recently approved pilot project and the work of skateboarder David Boots. To celebrate, Boots, along with the SAT, Quartier des Spectacles, and the borough of Ville-Marie, will be hosting 4 different (and free!) skateboarding events during the rest of the summer.

First on the skate-party docket are a series of Skate Jam and Tea Tuesdays. From 6pm to 9pm, Peace Park will transform into a combo skate competition and breakfast-themed chill spot. Cash prizes will be given to winners of the best tricks competitions, DJs will be on-site providing tunes during the whole event, and everyone who comes out will get to mack on some free toast, jam, and tea.

The first Skate Jam and Tea Tuesday will be held tomorrow August 19th. A weekly event, the following Tuesday (August 26th) will see another Skate Jam and Tea Tuesday, with the final jam-sesh (pun intended) happening on September 2nd.

All of these events will culminate in a party celebrating the 20th anniversary of Peace Park on Saturday, September 20th. Bigger and better than last year's party, Peace Park's 20th b-day party will feature food, DJs, musical performances, skateboarding competitions, and a video presentation highlighting the best moments of Peace Park history.

Each party is meant to showcase how skateboarders and the people of Peace Park,  along with all of Montreal, can come together in a way to benefit the whole community. Not only are all of these Peace Park events free, they're gonna be a good time, so even if you don't skateboard, come out for a chill evening at Peace Park. Worst to worst, free jam and toast!
