ACTION SPORTS AT IT’S BEST
The 7th edition of the JACKALOPE action sports festival has taken place from August 17th to the 19th on the Sun Life Financial Esplanade at the Olympic Park in Montreal. Regardless of the weather, more than 15,000 people showed up for the event.
Just for the weekend, festival goers were given the chance to live an amazing experience high in adrenaline. The perfect meeting spot to enjoy not only the skateboarding world cup competition, a crazy BMX and Base Jump demonstration but also fun activities for families and sports enthusiasts. The JACKALOPE experience wouldn’t be complete without a wide selection of food trucks, pops up shops and bars. Last but not least, Tony Hawk , Mat Hoffman and friends gave out a live demo on the vert for the joy and amazement of all !
Beside the skateboarding world cup competition, the event’s main attraction was the appearance of skateboard legend Tony Hawk, made possible thanks to Vidéotron and Samsung. Mat Hoffman was also in the game and performed a sick BMX demo on the vert. Children and adults could enjoy plenty of other free activities! Some jaw dropping climbing performances gathered an amazing crowd that was living the experience fully and intensely. A wide range of activities were also available like axe throwing, an escape room, slackline, freestyle soccer demonstration and many more!
