TEMPLE (June 22, 2014) The X-Games may be over but for at least one day in Temple, skating is on display.
"Well, we're always looking for a way to reach out to all areas of the community, said Temple Parks and Leisure Services Program Coordinator Belinda Garcia. "We're always trying to grow our teen programs so we knew that skating was pretty in and hip so we decided to try this out three years ago and its just grown to the event that it is today."
The third annual Late Skate event has allowed local skaters to show off in front of a crowd.
"They get 15 minutes, it's a long time, and they get to expose all the tricks that they've got," said Devin White who emceed the event and is also a skater. "we've got a huge fan (base), everybody is getting hyped up and clapping and stuff like that. But most importantly it's all about fun and everybody's having a good time out here."
