The Art for the Skate Park Auction, which was originally scheduled for Sept. 3 at Marina Fest in Sister Bay, has been rescheduled for Fall Fest weekend, Oct. 15 and 16.

The auction will feature skateboards painted by local artists and area students with all proceeds benefiting the Sister Bay Skate Park.

Twenty boards have been on display in local businesses since June, and Lisa MacDonald, one of the organizers, said she recently received more to enter into the auction. More boards coupled with the positive feedback the group received about them resulted in the decision to postpone the event.

When MacDonald last checked, the highest bid stood at $175.

“It’s going really well…people are bidding on them, so we said let’s just keep them up until [Fall Fest],” MacDonald said.

The Art for the Park Skateboards are currently on display at Drink Coffee in downtown Sister Bay.
