If you consider yourself a hardcore Hessian and you like free hot dogs—and what hardcore Hessian doesn't?—then you're invited to Active Ride Shop's fourth annual Hot Dogs & Hessians Skate Park Tour! Having made pit stops throughout Southern California, it makes its next appearance at Costa Mesa's Active at THE CAMP. Free hot dogs and refreshing drinks—compliments of Active—will be served to all those who attend the event. But that's not all, Sk8r Boi! Active's own troupe of Hessians will be sporting '80s-hair-metal attire while entertaining attendees in the Best Trick "Winner Takes All" Contest. There will also be appearances by some of the hottest professional skateboarders. Loads of product and promotional giveaways will be given away throughout the event, too. All hail free stuff!
What really sets this skate-park tour apart is that you—yes, you—get to show off your best ollie, grind, flip trick and aerial during the skateboarding demos! It'll be just like skateboarding in the X Games—minus the thousands of people cheering you on and the endorsement deals. So, bring an empty stomach, your metal-damaged eardrums and your skateboarding skills to THE CAMP!
Hot Dogs & Hessians Skate Park Tour at Costa Mesa's Active Ride Shop at THE CAMP, 2937 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, (714) 432-1918. Thurs., July 20, 3-6 p.m. Free.
