Go Skateboarding Day 2013On Friday June 21st, the world will celebrate Go Skateboarding Day (GSD), Medicine Hat, very much included! Grab your skateboard and head to Inland Skatepark tomorrow! I noticed while driving earlier this week that Inland Skatepark was getting some major renovations/expansions. It didn’t look like it would be ready for this event, but all signs point to yes!

West 49, in their normal fashion, are in full support of skateboarding locally. Visit West 49 at the Medicine Hat Mall parking lot starting at 5PM where they will be hosting a game of S.K.A.T.E. with the West 49 flow team. Prizes and give-aways will be available!

The Boarding House ‏will also be celebrating at the Inland Skatepark from 4-8PM. Expect a BBQ, music, prizes, contests, and more!

Watch some highlights from last year’s Go Skate Day (in Peterborough):

Come and support Team Diabetes Medicine Hat and the Canadian Diabetes Association at a charity BBQ. July 24 from 10AM-4PM at M&M Meat Shops on 13th Ave SE in Medicine Hat. Hamburgers and hotdogs will be served, as well as free giveaways!

Hope to see you there!

The Hit N Run Reunion Benefit Dance is being held in honor of Ralph & Shirley Seefried who lost their home to a fire on April 31st, 2009. Unfortunately due to lack of insurance on their home of 40 years and no money to start over, this benefit dance and BBQ is designed to help raise money to assist them in rebuilding their lives.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 29th, 2009 at the Redcliff Rectangle Arena. It will start for the public at 6PM kicking off the BBQ (with open bar). Live music will begin at 6:30PM with performances by Psycho CirKiss (A local Kiss tribute band, amazing name by the way), Whiskey Ridge (country/rock band) and Hit n’ Run, a rock band that played locally in the 1980’s and 1990’s who will be reuniting for this event.

This year’s Medicine Hat’s own Jazz festival, “Medicine Hat JazzFest” will be taking place from June 19th to the 28th with events happening every day in between. I would first love to congratulate the team that brought together the graphics and design direction for the program booklet, the website, posters, and even the t-shirts – it is really well done and beautifully executed. If anybody knows who did it, I would love to find out.

Anyways, moving right a long, This year’s JazzFest has a crazy amount of events, musicians and gatherings throughout the full 9 days. I was at first going to list them verbatim from the program booklet, but alas, they were really organized and even have an online PDF for your viewing and reading pleasure. I will tell you though that it features more than 30 different events with almost as many different bands or performers.

You can also grab yourself a ticket pass which costs $139, but this allows you to get into every show without a cover charge, so it’s well worth it even if you plan on going to half the events. There’s a couple restrictions though, make sure you read the fine print on the ticket page. If you are really into it, make sure you read through the full program because there is some other events happening not listed in the schedule including events happening at places like Twist, The Ottoman Lounge and Devine to name a very few.

If you are broke, looking for free shows or just don’t like supporting local and national music for some reason (for shame!), there is also plenty of no charge events going on as well. More notably in this category, is the Vespa Youth Stage which will be a free BBQ as well as feature music by plenty of local young talents in the city including Jess Dollimont. This one will take place at Riverside Bandshell First St. S.E. (across from City Hall) starting at noon Thursday, June 25th.

As found in the Medicine Hat News: The Medicine Hat and District Food Bank is holding a garage sale and BBQ this weekend. It will be held on Saturday (May 23rd), from 9AM to 4PM in the food bank parking lot which is at 532 South Railway St. SE. It is a charity-style garage sale which means anybody can bring items to donate; although I think the deadline just ended as I am posting this. There will be both breakfast (coffee and muffin for $1) and lunch (burger, chips and pop for $3) available to visitors.

Also, keep in mind, as posted earlier, The Farmer’s Market will officially open Saturday as well. Looks like I got lots of shopping to do tomorrow!
