What is the Wheelies and Waves Weekend all about?

We are putting on this event, with the help of our amazing local sponsors, to celebrate another awesome summer in the Gunnison Valley. We want to take this opportunity to thank the community for the support they’re give Wheelies and Waves, and all of the local businesses in town. We want to give back to Gunnison with a fun, completely free weekend celebration! 

The Skate Drive Pool Party

We’ll be kicking the weekend off with the Skate Drive Pool Party. The Pool Party will be held at Gunnison Skatepark. It is a celebration of the end of our summer long Skate Drive (link page). We will be collecting final skateboard donations, as well as holding a raffle for those who participated in the drive. We hope this event will help create some more hype around skating in Gunnison, and provide some skate inspiration for the kids receiving donated boards from our Skate Drive. The Pool Party will include skate contests for kids and adults. Registering for the skate contest is free, and you’ll have the chance to win some awesome prizes! Throughout the day, skaters and spectators can enjoy music, food, and drinks. We will also be collecting skateboard donations throughout the event at our donation booth. Find more details on what events are being held and when it’s all happening below.
