the problem is not with Adelaide.

Enter the scooter, BMX or skate comps
Watch BMX Jumps at Mitcham Council's Karinya Reserve
Youth Fest 14 is a free family fun day at Karinya Reserve in Eden Hills, south of Adelaide. Following on from last year's successful event Youth Fest 14 brings kids in Adelaide an afternoon of fun things to do.
From 12pm the skate, scooter and BMX track at Karinya Reserve will be humming as youngsters compete for prizes in separate skate, scooter and BMX comps. Karinya Reserve is usually one of the busier skate parks around Adelaide, and is only set to get busier as the City Skate Park closes and becomes a building site.
There's Fun Things to Do at Skate Parks Around Adelaide
Entry to the skate competitions is free with plenty of prizes being offered, however contest entrants will need to register beforehand or on the day. Last year the competition standard was high in all categories, so contestants will be practising at the Mitcham Council's Karinya or Avenue Road skate parks before Youth Fest 14 kicks off. If you live outside the Mitcham Council area there are many other skate parks around Adelaide ranging from Salibury Council's Unity Park to Minkarra Park at Flagstaff Hill south of Adelaide.
Of course there's lots more fun things to do than just the skate competitions - the eight metre rock climbing wall is back this year, with face painting for toddlers, an airbrush artist and glitter tattoos, and the intriguingly named Gladiator Battle Castle.
Scale the Rock Climbing Wall at This Free Event at Karinya Reserve
Free live entertainment will be provided by the Battle of the Bands on a huge outdoor stage. The competition will be keen with prizes including the chance to win a day's use of a recording studio, free tickets to events, and paid gigs playing in Adelaide.
There will be plenty of market stalls to appeal to all ages, and the Sammy D Foundation Big Night Out Bus so bring the whole family to enjoy this free event.
