Downtown Throwdown Occupies Pioneer Square

Oftentimes the most ironic situation can turn into the most entertaining, as is proven every year when Snowboy Productions sets up the Downtown Throwdown, a massive rail jam for snowboarders in the middle of Seattle’s Occidental Park. Frequent passers found themselves locked in gazes as local and national riders duked it out downtown for the infamous IOU checks that are presented at the end of the night.

Sponsors of the event include Washington-based companies including Zumies, Lib Tech SnowboardsSnowboy ProductionsSno ConThink Thank, POW Gloves and more. Check out the video Jesse Burtner cranked out below!
