Carnival of Carnage Recap

On Saturday, September 8th we hosted the "Carnival of Carnage" at the new Cloquet skatepark after a 13 year hiatus and it did not disappoint. Around 50 skaters came out to participate in the festivities and some really heavy skating went down. Relive the days' events through these photos by Matt Kako.

Carter took the top spot with moves like this down the stairs.
Garrett was ripping all day.
Cloquet native Jackson going up the a-frame rail.

Josh and Jonas throwing down some unique crowd pleasing tricks.
Carter Kills, locked and loaded.
Twin Cities based musician and skater Jaw Knee Vee was pumping out the tunes for everyone.
The "King of Carnage" award hand painted by Duane Mullen.
Matt Anderson took it home along with a Toy Machine Tech Deck. I heard he's got a finger board edit in the works... Thanks for all you've done to get this park built Matt!
Carter won the Pocket Park event the day before then took top honors at the Carnival. Can't say anyone was too surprised.
