Harold Hunter Day IX is proudly presented by DC Shoes and the Harold Hunter Foundation, in association with supporting sponsors Zoo York, G-Shock and Skullcandy. The ninth annual event will take place Saturday, October 3, from Noon-6:30pm at New York City's Coleman Oval/LES Skatepark located under the Manhattan Bridge on the corner of Pike Street and Monroe Street.
Established in 2006 after Harold's untimely passing, and managed by the non-profit Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF), Harold Hunter Day IX will once again unite NYC's tight-knit skate community for a positive, fun-filled day of skateboarding in memory of Harold. HH Day celebrates everything Harold cherished most--skateboarding, music, friends, family, and of course, New York City.
This year's event will be hosted by skate industry veterans and HHF board members Jefferson Pang and Steve Rodriguez. Live music will be provided by acclaimed DJ, producer and lifelong skateboarder, TJ Mizell; son of the late, great Jam Master Jay of Run DMC.
As is the case every year, Harold Hunter Day IX will feature an all-ages skate jam with appearances by numerous top pros including DC team riders Evan Smith, Wes Kremer, Cyril Jackson, Tristan Funkhouser, among others.
Throughout the day, a variety of Best Trick Contests will be held on various skatepark obstacles with cash and prizes generously provided by DC Shoes, Zoo York and G-Shock. At the conclusion of HH Day, a massive product toss will take place featuring free skateboard decks, t-shirts, hats, stickers, and more from event sponsors.
