Are you ready for Shredfest? You say what is Shredfest?

The fourth annual Shredfest is coming to Hannibal, Saturday, July 14. This is a big deal. It is a free skateboard, bike and scooter competition. It is held at Hannibal's great Ramp Park in Huckeberry Park. And get this. The first 200 people to attend as a spectator or a participant gets a t-shirt and a Pro-Tech helmet from Ride Cool, sponsored by Hannibal Clinic Health Services.

As I said, this is a big deal. This is why the ramp park was built in Hannibal. For fun yes, but also for competitions like this. You know it is a big deal when professionals from PlanNine, an extreme sports company in Hazelwood, Missouri, will be on site. Plus they will emcee and judge the contests. Big thanks to the people who sponsor this, like Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department, Hannibal Health Services and PlanNine. Some great prizes have been donated, too.
