ARLINGTON — Joe Mazzone came all the way from Chicago to skateboard in Arlington, so he wasn’t about to let a little rain discourage him, even when it turned into a lot of rain.

The Centennial Sk8 Festival Oct. 10-11 saw participants come from as near as Oregon, Idaho and California, and as far as Texas, Tennessee, Florida, Maine, New York and New Jersey.

Mazzone came in first in the 5K race on Centennial Trail that Saturday with a time of 11 minutes, 37 seconds, while Colby Cummings of Portland followed close on his heels at 11:38.
