Providence allowed the Gravity Games to totally transform their beautiful downtown Riverside Park into a Mega Kewl facility..

Downtown on the Waterwalk - 1999 Mark Greenberg Complete with a "State-of-the-Art" HUGE SCREEN to watch the action LIVE as you relaxed by the Waterside . . .

Concert Stage with State House in the back ground- 1999 Mark Greenberg A full size Stage was set up on a large opened field (?) (I think it used to be a lawn... ha, ha) for the scheduled Local Band Concerts such as the AMAZING CROWNS and SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS - to kick it off.. (Awesome!)

the facility included an Awesome Mud Run for some impressive Motocross.
Drying out the course

It proved to be more challenging than originally planned after Friday's totally - "Flood Causing" down-pour.

Churning the dirt to dry it out

They got 5 inches of rain in 10 hours...ish - all of the events and concerts had to be called off 'til Saturday - (We booked out for Boston for the day... But that's another story...) And even then - it took crews over 10 hours to toss and turn the mud to dry it out enough to hold the course!

Matt Salerno  - 1999 Jason Sleczkowski, Pawtaucket RI Pro's came from all over to Hang out and enjoy their sport Matt Salerno on Street to left - Tony Hawk on Vert to right.
