URBAN GAMES 2001

HAPPENINGText: Natsume Shiroyama

As long as it doesn’t rain, the best activity to spend the summer in London would definitely be out door events and festivals. On the last weekends of July in every year, an event called ‘Urban Games‘ takes place at South London area called Clapham Common.

This year, we all thought British summer had ended last week., but we managed to have a great summery 3 days with temperature went up beyond 30 degrees during the time of Urban Games.

Urban Games features activities, which are enjoyed in urban area. This does not just mean sitting in front of TV screen and playing computer games, but it presents BMX, Skateboard, Break dance, and Graffiti art. Also there were stalls with individual and unique skate boarder and Graffiti goods. These are not necessary for urban dweller, but activities enjoyed wherever you are.
