The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s premier skate park, SK8 Charleston, will continue to host a variety of themed events at the park this fall. Events are open for skateboarders and those just wishing to spectate and enjoy the festivities.
Coming up on Monday, August 19th, SK8 Charleston will host its first Back to School Bash, the “End of Summer Grind” from 6 pm to 9 pm. The event includes live music from Lagoona, the dinner from the Rebel Taqueria Food Truck, and shaved ice from Sno Biz Charleston.
