Support Parkour in Vancouver!
This weekend marks the most historic and monumental event for Parkour in the history of this city.
The Parks Board has built us a FREE Outdoor Facility! The first in Canada and the first legitimate one in North America. By showing up to this event, you directly influence future decisions by the city to build more sites like this one.
PKBC 9, the ninth annual summer parkour meet of the BC community will be held during the Grand Opening of this park. We’ll be jamming together on Saturday and the Origins family is slated to give two demo performances, followed by a challenge jam back at the gym! On Day 2, we’ll be jamming at UBC and having a BBQ before starting our Film Festival at the gym.
