Catch some air in downtown Las Vegas at Park Jam by Park on Fremont, an outdoor extreme sports celebration set to take over the lot next to the bar & eatery on Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7.
In collaboration with Park Fab and Kore Exhibits, Park on Fremont, Corner Bar Management Group and Zappos.com will create a resort-style winter wonderland in the heart of downtown Las Vegas. Park Jam will kick off at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, March 6 with a family-oriented celebration featuring an urban skateboarding inspired ramp, vendor booths from brands such as Zappos, Burton and Vans, music from DJ Shred and eleven-year-old music prodigy Niel Mac presented by the Red Bull MXT truck, an art contest, taco stand, beverages and more. Local artists will show off their talents by turning the snowboard ramp into a one-of-a-kind work of art using a number of different techniques, with the end product being taken to Eagle Point Resort in Utah. Children can learn to ride like the pros do through simulation rides on Burton’s kids’ boards.
Park Jam will culminate with the highly-anticipated snowboarding competition starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 7. The contest will feature professional snowboarders including Drayden Gardner, Scotty Vine, Lou Macias, Johnny Lazz, Ricky Crilley and other surprise riders. The competition will be announced by Dave Duncan, a nationally recognized professional athlete and sports announcer who served as the voice of the snowboard half pipe competition at the Park City Olympics in 2002. Spectators will be able to view practice runs and live replays on giant screens surrounding the venue while enjoying samples from brands including Tito’s Vodka and RESQWATER, a hangover prevention beverage. Courtesy of Zappos.com, Inspire Theatre, located directly across the street from Park on Fremont, will host a VIP viewing experience starting at 7 p.m. Attendees must have a wristband to enter the VIP area.
