8pm on friday Dec. 10 (rain date Dec. 17)
Happy Holidaze everyone! Just because winter is around the corner doesn’t mean NYC stops holding sweet events! The guys at Freshpaved.com are hosting Santa Sessions 2010! The video clip is from last year so watch it and get some ideas. I think you can still get Santa Costumes at Ricky’s in SoHo and probably many more places if you just Google it. Get wild, get crazy and show NYC what a longboard Holidaze is like.
Here is a look at the Invite E-mail from Jeff Gaites:
“It’s that most wonderful time of the year again — Sleigh Session 2010 — longboard run and toy drive. Skaters meet at columbus circle at 8pm on friday Dec. 10 (rain date Dec. 17) for broadway bomb like none other — everyone in SANTA SUITS — to spread some holiday cheer. Last two years were blasts. this year we are hoping for MORE santas. the run is down broadway to st marks to avenue A to finish at bar 2A for drinks. It’s a cheerful ride, not a race.
AGAIN we have a charity purpose – bring TOYS to donate to Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. Please bring a toy no matter how big or small. lucky santas will get to carry the sacks of toys!
We will stop at babies R us union square and dump the toys, then continue the ride. Last year we had three giant sacks of toys and the staff were blown away.
GET A SANTA SUIT (santasuits.com, fantasy parties waverly place or any rickys)
