The Freetown Hounds skateboard crew hosts the first inaugural Mardi Gras Bowl Jam on Mardi Gras day, Feb. 24. It’ll take place at the newly constructed public skateboard/bmx bowl & ramp park located behind the Goodwill store on Johnston St. There will be both bowl and streets contests as well as free live music provided by Greg Ginn & The Texas Corrugators, The Blessed, Six String Rodeo, and 10-Ton Junkie. Skaters will be out there all day, ripping it up in the new bowl as the parades pass, so if you’re looking for a good spot to watch the parades and keep an eye on your kids, why not combine the two with some inspired skateboarding? Be there—all day on Feb. 24.
