Happy birthday Mechelen DIY ! May this day always be a special one to remember.
To celebrate the 10 years of a skatepark built by so many passionate people, a heavy crew gathered to clean every dusty coping corner on that day with their trucks.
To spice things up, there was five bands playing live, money for challenges, DJs, Beer showers on demand, fireworks, bonefires, a photo exhibition of the past 10 years action, and even some skate Karaoke… you name it…
