Delta City Open IX: Candy Land
“I’d buy that for a dollar!” - Bixby Snyder
Detroit, Michigan — May 25th, 2019. The ninth year of DCO; Candy Land, which had some of the best art direction for its flyers leading up to the event, was nothing short of fun times with the community sticking together strongly while getting from one spot to another. The meet up and first spot was ledge island which is exactly what it sounds like. Everyone either drove or hopped on the bus provided to the second spot at the MLK apartments where the residents, especially young kids, gathered around the watch the clinic that was put onto the rail—definitely a highlight when the locals are cheering. We then made our way to an abandoned warehouse that was setup with DIY boxes, ramps, etc… which came at the perfect time because it began to rain pretty hard, and lastly the final spot which was a set of down rails. We ended the day at the newly built Riverside Skate Park where winners were announced along with bbq and cold ones. Nothing but good times and good hospitality. Cheers!
