BRAD Ehlers is hoping no mere mortal can resist the evil of the Thriller at Chinchilla on Saturday, October 29.

As part of his push to get the Chinchilla Skate Park refurbished, Mr Ehlers has organised with his friend and owner of Brisbane's Smallroom Skateboard Store Jay Musk to bring a crew of skaters to Chinchilla for an afternoon of extreme skating action.

"He's bringing out nine of his best riders,” Mr Ehlers said.

"They're doing all the stuff I'd be to scared to do.”

As well as putting on an awesome show for the crowd, Mr Ehlers said kids could come dressed up for Halloween, and there would be prizes on offer, including new decks, shirts and stickers.

Mr Ehlers said he was also hoping to have a food van there on the day as well.

To date, the campaign to refurbish the Chinchilla Skate Park has gathered around 200 signatures, with Mr Ehlers indicating he'd received good support from the community.

"A lot of the parents (of kids who use the park) have been really positive,” he said.

"We even had Maurice Smith, former deputy mayor of the Chinchilla Shire Council come down and sign for us too the other week.

"He's the bloke who opened the park back in 2000.”

The Thriller in Chinchilla kicks off at 2.30pm on Saturday, October 29.
