A large group of parkour enthusiasts are expected to hit Bunbury this weekend for the Freerun X5 Jam event. 

The local group are set to host athletes from Sydney, Canberra and one from Switzerland who has a social media following in excess of 23,000 people.

Starting at Anzac Park on Saturday at 3pm, competitors will show off their best tricks for four hours.

They will then head to X5’s new gym on Picton Road Bunbury at 12pm on Sunday for the second day of weekend long event.

The City of Bunbury and a number of private businesses have jumped on to help the event with Victoria Street closed between Stirling and Stephen Streets on Saturday afternoon to allow food trucks, local market stalls and DJs to join in the excitement. 

There will also be a free demonstration by the Bunbury Roller Derby Crew.
