Group hopes to build skate park with Project X Unity Festival

LAWTON, Okla._The Project X Unity Festival is coming to Lawton for the third straight year.

The action-packed event combines live musical performances with a skateboarding competition and stunt bike show. There will also be a fitness boot camp along with food and games, all for a good cause.

The money raised from admission will go to the City of Lawton to help with on-going efforts to build a new and improved skate park in Elmer Thomas Park. Organizer Jamar Lockhart says it's an event you don't want to miss.

"When you come out to Project X, just expect the unknown. Expect something that you've never seen before. We're just different. We try to be different and still inclusive in trying to bring everybody out here, so that we can get a true picture of what Lawton is all about," Lockhart said.

Lockhart says this year's event is even more special because it's being held in honor of one of their longtime volunteers, Jaden Austin, who died of cancer earlier this year. There will be a tree dedication in her honor.

The event kicks off Saturday at 2:15 p.m. at Louise D. McMahon Park off Southwest 38th Street and Lee Boulevard.
