The Johnny Romano Skate Jam benefitting the Make A Wish Foundation went down November 7 at the world famous Southside Skatepark in Houston, Texas. Pros from Fallen, Emerica, Adio, Real, World Industries, Famous and more came out to support. There were skate jams in the bowl, on the Zumiez marble ledge and down the Tranquility replica rail. Outside in the parking lot there were giveaways, autograph signings, and the famous dunk tank. Thanks to everyone that came out and raised money for a good cause.
