While I am not a big fan of skateboarding, watching this video of young kids skateboarding through Harlem gave me a new-found appreciation. These skateboarders in this video are very good. Some of the moves they perform on their board are incredible. Just watch.
The only downside to this video, these youngsters are not wearing any protective gear and they are skateboarding on the seating stones at the Frederick Douglass Circle. Ouch, that monument is new and I thought that was prohibited? I guess kids will be kids.
Overall, watch this video It’s fun and the music is wonderful! Happy Fourth of July. Enjoy!

There is October-fest for adults and now there is an OctoBear-fest for children in Harlem. What is OctoBear-fest in Harlem? It is a one hour workshop on how to make your own stuffed bear. On October 21 from 4-5 p.m., children will stuff, wish on a rainbow star during the rainbow star ceremony, snap and zip, and complete a birth certificate for their very own stuffed animal. Children will also be receiving Trick or Treat bags just in time for Halloween. OctoBear-fest will be conducted by a Harlemite, who is party leader from Noah’s Ark Animal Workshop. The cost to attend this event is $20.00 per child and includes the bear, drink and treat. Tickets may be available at the event at higher cost, while supplies last.
