X Games to Detroit in 2014 built a DIY skate park in the old volley ball courts next to the Brewster projects. They invited food trucks and people to come down and skate and hang out for the day before the free show over at the Majestic featuring Andrew W.K. Red Bull showed up with a giant truck with a DJ and a few food trucks showed up to provide snacks and water. It was one of the hottest days of the year so far, so water was a much needed commodity.
I am hesitant to complain about either of these things and here is why. I am so fucking proud that anyone is creating and hosting any cool event in Detroit, especially if it is free. They did do a great job on what i would assume was no budget and gave all of us a chance to get together and hang out in the city on Go Skateboarding Day. This is hopefully the start of more and more events that people will hold downtown. These guys are bringing people back down to the city and creating a buzz. So I say despite the road bumps, this was an awesome idea and fun event.
I really hope we get to see the X Games in Detroit in 2014!
