Red Bull Trick or Treat haunts Brooklyn this Halloween as top pro BMX riders compete, bringing street to the city on October 29.
Kicking off Halloween weekend, Red Bull Trick or Treat will give Brooklynites a front row seat to watch BMX street riders take on the night. On October 29th, 24 of the most core and respected BMX riders in the country will gather at Newtown Barge Park for a contest that will be full of tricks, and for the winning pair, some much deserved treats.
Local BMX Pro rider Edwin De La Rosa is inviting 12 teams of two riders each to go trick for trick in a jam session elimination format, with a final jam that will take guts, skills, and some good luck from the dark side to win. Red Bull Trick or Treat will feature Halloween themed obstacles, like a Grim Reaper blade rail section and a 1969 Cadillac Hearse. With the Manhattan skyline in the background, fans will be witness to truly authentic street riding by some of the most respected riders in the industry including Nigel Sylvester, Aaron Ross, Sean Sexton, Tony Hamlin, Eddie Cleveland, Garrett Hoogerhyde, Kenny Horton, Joel Barnett, Tyrone Williams, Butcher, Mike Hoder, Tom White, and Edwin De La Rosa with more to be announced.
The event is free for all ages, and will feature DJ Freqnik, in partnership with The Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn and City Sports Alliance. Costumes are encouraged for both riders and onlookers.
