12PM: Nike and 5Boro help kick the day off at the Maloof park in Queens, NY. Paul Rodriguez, Eric Koston, Stefan Janoski, Brian Anderson and Clark Hassler are said to be making an appearance so kids bring your Sharpie markers! Eventually Steve Rodriguez will announce the route in which everyone will make their way to the unveiling of the newly redesigned LES x Coleman x Nike skate park.
6PM: The 6th annual Harold Hunter Run will meet up at the LES x Coleman x Nike skate park and end up at the new Homage skate shop at 64 Bergen Street, Brooklyn NY (skaters & runners welcome).
