The Harold Hunter Foundation, in association with primary sponsors Airwalk, Skullcandy, Zoo York, Monster Energy, and Supreme, is proud to announce the 7th Annual Harold Hunter Day will go down Saturday, October 12th, from 1:00-5:00pm at NYC’s Coleman Oval/L.E.S. Skatepark under the Manhattan Bridge.
Established in 2006 after Harold’s untimely passing, and managed by the non-profit Harold Hunter Foundation, Harold Hunter Day VII will once again unite NYC’s tight-knit skate community for a positive, fun-filled day of skateboarding in memory of Harold. The event celebrates what Harold cherished most: skateboarding, music, friends, family, and of course, New York City.
Hosted by Jefferson Pang and Dave Ortiz, with live music provided by DJ Smoke L.E.S., Harold Hunter Day VII will feature an all-ages skate jam with appearances by pro skateboarders, pop-up Best Trick contests, and massive product giveaways.
Harold was one of the OG members of the Zoo Crew. It was his legendary antics and larger-than-life personality that helped put the NYC skate scene on the map years ago. Zoo York is celebrating the extraordinary history of East Coast skateboarding with its new Zoo York Kings collection. To launch the premium apparel and hardgoods offering, and celebrate the life and times of Harold, Zoo York has teamed up with the Harold Hunter Foundation to release a limited edition deck and t-shirt. The collaborative kit will only be available at select skate shops, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the HHF.
Harold Hunter Day VII is made possible through generous support from the aforementioned primary sponsors as well as 5boro, SHUT, TORRO!, Rock Star Bearings, Trophy Grip, New Breed, UXA, Shake Shack, The Professionals: NYC Sound Company, and the collective NYC skateboarding community.
