‘Haunted Walk’ to benefit Ridgway Skate Park | New
RIDGWAY – A spooky night sponsored by the Ridgway Recreational Association will benefit needed repairs and maintenance at the Ridgway Skate Park.
The Haunted Trail walk will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on October 22 and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on October 23 behind Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School.
Spokesman Gary Gerber said they hope to raise $ 5,000 by spring 2022 to purchase equipment and jumps for young skate park riders.
“There are a lot of random repairs throughout the park that will need to be completed before the opening next spring, and funds will help with those repairs as well,” he said.
The North Mill Street skate park opened on May 25, 2019, welcoming enthusiastic and enthusiastic young people.
Gerber was involved in building the original skate park at Ridgway many years ago, and his son became a professional BMX rider. Gerber spearheaded the fundraising and rebuilding of the new skate park today.
Fees are $ 5 for adults, $ 3 for children, and children 5 and under are free.
Hot dogs and refreshments will be available.
Those who attend should bring a flashlight and “beware” of things creeping in the dark.

Monetary donations to the skate park can be sent to Gary Gerber, 524 Montmorenci Road, Ridgway, PA 15853.
