(CNS) – Hundreds of skateboarders swarmed downtown Los Angeles just after noon today, according to officials with the Los Angeles Police Department.
The LAPD’s Central Division reported about 300 skaters downtown, along First Street going toward Spring Street, and on Seventh Street, LAPD Officer Liliana Preciado said.
The occasion was the 13th annual Go Skateboarding Day, a worldwide celebration of the activity, which was advertised on social media and also took place in Venice Beach, Huntington Beach and San Diego, according to organizers.
Police kept an eye on the gathering, but other than some minor traffic inconveniences there appeared to be no trouble.
