New date set for Brandon Skate Park's grand opening | Entertainment
Brandon, Florida-- The new skate park in Brandon originally scheduled their Grand Opening event for April 21, but had to re-schedule because of an inclement weather forecast.

The event will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony with County Commissioners followed by demonstrations by local skateboarders. The Skate Park is located at 5720 Providence Road.
