After all the hard work Andrew Po, HOMEBASE skate shop, the town of Bethlehem and who ever else helped with contributing to this fine yet incomplete plaza. ITS FINALLY HERE! On behalf of all the skaters we would like to say thanks.
Heres the recap of the 2nd day of the grand opening, July 17th 2010. The day was marked for skateboarding only and hosted events such as a demo featuring pros/ams- Josh kalis, wes kremer, ishod wair, tom asta and many other rippers. Also skate shop only competitions such as a Game of Skate, best trick on different obstacles through out the park, as well as autograph signings, raffles and ofcourse the product toss for the kids.
Heres some of the highlights of the event.

It was a great and beautiful day in the town of Bethlehem, pa. And had to be an even greater day for Andrew Po and the ones that had this vision years ago. And lets not forget the plaza is only about 1/3’s complete and they still need money to complete the whole thing!
