Fun on Wheels Skate Jakes Hosts Annual Event | New
After missing last year due to COVID, Skate Jakes, an annual event held at Jakes Skate Park Malakoff, was on September 26. The MC this year was Bo Celenze from Dallas Texas, a pro skateboarder for Untitled Skateboards.
Celenze brought in several avid skaters from the Dallas area to show off their skills and mentor the local skaters. Rob Bremerman from Odessa provided the sound equipment and some great music to keep the crowd entertained. Pastor Rick Barnes from Kuzzins Kitchen in Ennis brought his food truck and cooked the best fish and chips.
About 200 people participated this year, with some coming from as far as 150 miles. The event featured the largest competition ever, with 42 skaters. Skaters of all ages competed for cash prizes as well as skateboards, scooters and gift cards. There were raffles for prizes for everyone who attended the event.
This event was sponsored by Lake Community Fellowship, 610 E. Tyler St.,
