We dropped media coverage from the 2016 Snowboard on the Block event! The 2-day party went down on 10/14 + 10/15/2016! The Block festival featured new snowboard film premiers, live music, a pro rail jam, local vendors, and a mini skate ramp. It was great they moved the Block festival from the old location to right downtown in Sculpture Park. This bigger location allowed the festival to be larger then years past and the set up was dope inside!
All of us had a great time watching the new snowboard films! On Friday our highlights were seeing the filmed titled "Manboys the Movies" by Shred Bots. Then seeing the hard ass Chief Keef and the Glo Gang live set made the 1st day of the Block Festival go off. Here is our full City2Snow Day 1 Photos + Review, CLICK HERE.
On day 2 of the Block festival we enjoyed the rail jam in the afternoon. Shout out to Vans “Off The Wall” for presenting the Van Doren Pro Jam which was a street-style snowboard competition. They brought 25 tons of snow to make that rail jam happen, and Jesse Paul of Salomon Snowboards won the contest. Our main Day 2 highlights were the Afroman set and the epic film titled "Stronger" by Union.
Thanks again to SNOWBOARDER and TransWORLD SNOWBoarding for having us out. Also shout out Tsunami Music Publicity for getting us linked up on the event. Hope everybody had fun at Snowboard on the Block. Have a huge winter out there and shred lots of powwwwww. Mad love #C2SFAM we will definitely be checking out Snowboard on the Block next year!
Here are the photos we took from Day 1 and Day 2 of the event :)
