Los Skarnales and DJ Ceeplus Black Knives are among the entertainers who'll appear at the 3rd Annual Rock the Cradle for Johnny Romano Memorial Contest. The only event of its kind in the state, Rock the Cradle benefits the Johnny Kicks Cancer Foundation.

Expect to see local and national skaters such as Sergie Ventura, Ken Fillion and Chris Gentry. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark, 103 Sabine Street.
