The Annual Birthday Party has been going on every year for many, many, many years. On October 31st skateboarders come in costume & casual attire for the all day event to skateboard the Burnside Projects. Over the years many have made the pilgrimage for Halloween or other times of the year. We listen to music, jam out, have a reunion of sorts, & party, along with some unbelievable heavy skateboard session status, & usually a new surprise feature to skate. After Dark there has known to be lights on occasion, some hang out & others go out on the town to our lush amount of Bars, Clubs, AfterParties etc!! What are you waiting for, get your flight or a ride & come to the Party of the Decade & Century, “Burnside Projects XX Year Anniversary/Birthday” Oct. 31st 2010
