Everyone was happy to be in McKern Skate Park on Saturday.
Young and old turned out to watch skaters show off their skills at the first Burra Comp Day.
The event was organised and run by Eaglehawk Secondary College students, with support from Bendigo Blue Light and local businesses and community groups.
At least 45 people entered events on the day.
Skate shop owner Albert ‘Skip’ Skipper said the event was all about giving Eaglehawk kids the confidence in their ability to put the event together.
“For me it’s these kids walking away and going ‘wow look what we achieved’,” he said.
“It was good to see the Eaglehawk community come together like that and bridge that gap between young and old.
“It’s a big thing for these kids to show the older generation, parents, grandparents, what they can actually do.”
