Wild in the Streets

Last years Wild in the Streets in Vancouver... From the Emerica site.

Last year's Wild in the Streets in Vancouver... From the Emerica site.

What are you doing this Sunday? Join approximately 5000+ skateboarders as they hit the streets in Vancouver this year for Emerica’s Wild in the Streets.

The goal of Wild in the Streets is to build community & raise awareness of skateboarding and the needs of skateboarders. It is our hope that Wild in the Streets will someday take on the character of a large-scale, decentralized grassroots movement for the benefit of skateboarders everywhere. We believe in the ability of skateboarders to empower themselves to do great things. Be a part of something amazing, or better yet, create your own amazing event.

T-Shirts of this epic event are being sold at Antisocial (2337 Main Street) and at the Underworld Emerica team signing on Saturday, with all benefits going towards Leeside. Learn more about that here.

Here’s a loose schedule of events for this weekend:
Saturday, June 20th, 2pm – Emerica team signing at Underworld (860 Granville Street)
Saturday, June 20th, 4’ish (?) – Emerica Leeside Session (after the team signing, there’s a session at Leeside – timing is sketchy here, so go with the flow on this one)
Saturday, June 20th, 10pm – No Age and The Goat at The Biltmore Cabaret (not an official WITS show)
Sunday, June 21st, 1pm -
Wild in the Streets Vancouver (Meet at The Plaza at 1pm) Will probably run until at least 7 at various spots and parks around the city.

Check the video from last year’s WITS:

To learn more about Wild in the Streets, please see either their Facebook page, or Emerica’s Wild in the Streets website, and for up to the second updates, follow the WITS mayhem on Twitter.

We’ll just go ahead and throw this out there… Please be respectful and careful out there on Sunday.
