Pearl Jam bass player and skate park advocate Jeff Ament spent Saturday hanging out in his hometown of Big Sandy by one of the many skate parks he's built in Montana.
Ament and friends celebrated at the all-day event The Sixth Annual Big Sandy Pig Roast SK8 Jam, eating local slow-roasted pork, skateboarding and talking with friends. Meanwhile, the pool near the skate bowl was packed with laughing children and parents looking for a way to mitigate the effects of the blazing sun.
Ament had been traveling the West with a group of friends and Saturday was the tail end of a long trip.
