DV8 and Snowjam Photos

DV8 and Snowjam were skate/snowboard/BMX events at Olympic Plaza and in front of City Hall from 2001-2003. There were great bands there too, like Sloan, Social Distortion, and Rahzel, just to name a few.

Enjoy these photos of Calgary skateboarding history.

Millennium Park Lasers

Did you know that Calgary’s Millennium Park skatepark has lasers? From the Laserist.org website:

Laser Fantasy International has completed work on Canada’s first permanent outdoor laser display. Located at the new Millennium Park in Calgary, the display features 24 separate beams that radiate like spokes on a wheel from the top of a 35-foot tower”

And from CanadianArchitect.com:

“The design features a spiral ramp surrounded by 24 columns, which deflect 24 beams generated in the centre of the scheme by two high intensity lasers to produce a 300-metre high tower of light. This installation is the first permanent outdoor laser display in Canada and its construction required approval from civil aviation authorities. The result is a spectacular combination of laser technology and architecture.”

CASE has been communicating with the City of Calgary Parks department in an effort to get the lasers turned on for a special occasion. Stay tuned for updates!
