According to Bucky Lasek’s Twitter account, the famous skateboarder was touring around Maryland Tuesday to promote the Dew Tour coming to Ocean City this summer.
The Dundalk native was in and around Baltimore, even paying a visit to radio station Z104.3, to get the word out about the tour coming back to the state.
The event features an array of extreme sports, most notably skateboarding, and is scheduled for July 21-24.
The event will be broadcast live for two hours on July 23 and 24 on NBC Universal, domestically and internationally, and is expected to get coverage on USA Network and MTV as well, according to Alli’s application to the City Council.
The Camden Yards sports complex hosted the Dew Tour in 2007 and 2008, but a scheduling conflict with the Baltimore Orioles prevented the tour from returning in 2009.
When the tour came to Baltimore in 2008, it drew more than 52,000 fans to the Camden Yards parking lots and created about $10 million in economic impact, according to city tourism leaders. The tour drew more than 55,000 action sports fans in its inaugural Baltimore stop in 2007.
