The Element in Castlegar looked a little different on Saturday night as workers built a 4 foot half-pipe right on the dance floor. All night a mix of local and professional skaters took turns showing off their skateboarding skills as world class DJ’s spun the tunes.
The event was Bro Hymn 2 NO RULZ, a fundraiser for Sk8 Shoes 4 Kids. Money raised from ticket sales will go to providing skate shoes for less privileged youth in Castlegar and the area.
It was also an evening to remember former Castlegar skateboarding legend Josh Evin, who came up with the original idea for Sk8 Shoes 4 Kids.
