Saturday Night Life is one of the reasons Tampa Pro is such a unique, exciting, and memorable event. The Skatepark of Tampa ignites with pumped up fans, burning bulbs spilling electric light onto the ramps, and the sound of wheels hitting wood on repeat.

Tampa Pro 2019 warps it up with the Sunday Tampa Pro After Party located once again at The Bricks at 1327 E. 7th Avenue in Tampa at 8:00 PM, but be wary, the times can be a little wonky at these events.
