TEENS will hit the ramps of Pinjarra Skate Park between 4pm and 9pm on Saturday April 14th for the 2018 Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest.

Major event drawcard the Freestyle Now Skate, Scooter and BMX competition, returns for round four of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series.

Skate, scooter and BMX enthusiasts can enter the beginner, intermediate or open class categories.

Shire president David Bolt said the competition offered a platform for local youth to demonstrate their skills and was a great opportunity for the shire to entice young people from outside the region to experience the wonders of Murray.

The event will also feature a virtual reality tent, skateboard design workshop, art activities, youth service displays and a range of food trucks.

For the budding artist, creatives from Graphite Crew will host an Urban Street Art Sesh workshop, coaching people through the production of intricate aerosol designs.

“The event encourages teamwork, sportsmanship and perseverance and is a productive outlet for popular youth pastimes,’’ Cr Bolt said.

The Youth Fest is an official event of the 2018 Youth Week and a smoke, alcohol and drug free event and supported by Country Arts WA, Healthway, the Department of Local Government and Communities, Alcoa and the Shire of Murray.

Registrations are essential and can be completed online at freestylenow.net/coming-events or from 3pm on the day.
