MISSOULA, Mont. -

On Friday, the 9th Annual On Deck art show fundraiser is taking place in conjunction with Missoula's First Friday.

"On Deck" is an event that auctions off skateboard decks decorated by artists from around Montana and across the United States. The money raised will go to help continue with maintenance of Missoula's MOBASH skate park and be used for future skate park projects.

President of the Montana Skate Park Association Chris Bacon has been an integral part of the skateboard culture in Missoula for over a decade. "On Deck is something that we've been doing for 9 years, the art work has definitely been progressing. Every year we've had great boards but I feel like the number of great boards has like greatly increased."

The event begins at 5 p.m. Friday at the Brink Gallery in Missoula. For more information on On Deck 9 click here.
