Mob Skate Through The Puerto Rican Day Parade This Sunday

“It took some doing, but we were finally able to secure our ticket into this years PR Day Parade. As we all know this parade is one of the largest gatherings in NYC. Viewed by millions in person & millions more internationally on television. For years I have skated through & shot the parade (with Daddy Yankee, the EBC crew, etc). Jon Ortiz, Joe Dedentro & started mobbin’ thru the parade back in the late 90’s. It is one of the most fun this to do on skates in this city. The energy is unsurpassed. The visibility couldn’t be greater. Security is always tight, but in the past we have been able to get ourselves in there. This year I called upon a friend & colleague to hook it up & he did. John Leguizamo is the Ambassador to the Arts for this years parade. And as you probably know he has his award nominated show Ghetto Klown on Broadway this year. So, here’s the deal. We get 30 Ghetto Klown shirts to rock & that’s our ticket in to the parade procession… Regardless of the limited supply of T’s we encourage as many skaters to come out & take part. I’ll get you in. This is a great opportunity to get our sport/culture seen on a world stage. The event is super fun & there is nothing like mobbin’ thru a sea of a few million people. Bring your cameras & anything you want to promote. Please be on time (10:30am at the meet location – 48th & 6th) as the parade starts promptly at 11am & we need to be within the line up before then to ensure our spots. I guarantee this will be a good time & for damn sure it beats standing in the crowd” – Ray Mendez.
