HH TRIBUTE VIDS USING QR CODES

Tomorrow afternoon, Saturday, October 10th, Harold Hunter Day III will once again unite NYC’s skateboarding community for a positive day of shredding in honor of the late, great Harold Hunter.

This highly-anticipated event will kick off at 1pm at the Manhattan Bridge Skatepark in Chinatown, with pop-up best trick events throughout the day, a massive product giveaway and beats courtesy of DJ Smoke LES and DJ Ani.

New this year, the HH Day III skate jam will feature a series of Harold Hunter tribute videos accessible on-site via QR Code Technology. The Harold Hunter Foundation teamed up with NYC creative studio, We Are Plus, for this innovative way to engage event attendees with Harold and give younger skaters, who may not have known him, the chance to get a taste for how special he truly was.

A QR (Quick Response) Code is a two-dimensional bar code containing information that can be scanned quickly and read by electronic devices.  Common in Japan but relatively new in the US, anyone using a camera-equipped smartphone with QR Code Reader software can scan a QR Code and access the information it contains – in this case seven exclusive HH tribute videos.  So before tomorrow’s event, download the free code reader software at www.beetagg.com or in the iPhone App Store. Then at the Manhattan Bridge Skatepark look for posters containing QR Codes, snap a photo of the code and watch what happens!

Also don’t forget that once the skate jam is a wrap, an after-party will go down from 9pm-Midnight at KCDC Skateshop in Brooklyn.  Open to the 21+ crowd only, free beverages, live music and mini-ramp sessions will be on tap all night.
