The Calgary Association of Skateboarding Enthusiasts (C.A.S.E.) has once again partnered with the City of Calgary (Recreation) to celebrate Go Skateboarding Day on Sunday, June 21st from 1pm-4pm at Shaw Millennium Park.
Go Skateboarding Day is an internationally recognized day to celebrate skateboarding. Beginning in 2004, the informal holiday promotes skateboarding through free events in hundreds of cities on that day. June 21st has been recognized by US Congress as Go Skateboarding Day.

Competitions, games, and giveaways are planned for the day. The free celebration is open to all ages of skateboarders and spectators. C.A.S.E. encourages families to attend.
