Go Skateboarding Day was yesterday: hundreds of skaters went down 14th Street

This is pretty cool. Yesterday was Go Skateboarding Day, an annual event that aims to encourage skateboarding.

You may remember that in past years, the Palace 5 skate shop at 14th and Florida has had a lot of events in the past for it, and skaters gather there before skating down 14th to downtown and the Mall.

They did the same this year, and my buddy who works on 14th reported "hundreds" of skaters at about 3 pm. Pretty cool stuff. Here's a video, with some shots of the mass skate downtown and various tricks and such, and M.V. Jantzen has a bunch of photos of the kids around 14th and Florida (see one below the video.)
