The event is to "celebrating the Canadian launch of his signature apparel, accessories and footwear brand at Walmart Canada. The Tony Hawk Lands in Canada event will feature Hawk and the talents of five renowned skateboarding heavyweights, Kevin Staab, Andy Macdonald, Amelia Brodka, Lincoln Ueda, and Evan Doherty. The day will kick off at 8:00-9:00 am with the five world class skateboarders warming up on the ramp and surprise appearances by Hawk himself at 8:15 am and 8:40 am. Then, at 12:00pm, Hawk and all five skaters will return to perform a bonus 45-minute demo. Both shows will include product giveaways and more."
"As a skateboard innovator for over 30 years, Hawk is famously known for being the first to land a ‘900’ – a trick that involves performing two-and-a-half 360 degree spins in mid-air. Still a force to be reckoned with, 48 year-old Hawk wowed audiences this past June when he nailed the ‘900’ move that he first performed at the 1999 X Games."
