As city officials look into possible locations for a skatepark on the Peninsula, a skate event will be held this Saturday in Rolling Hills Estates featuring ramps, rails and skateboarding professionals.
The "Skate the Hill" session will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Ernie Howlett Park, 25851 Hawthorne Blvd. in Rolling Hills Estates.
"For four hours kids can come and skate ramps, rails, and grind boxes. We’re going to have pros and local skate shops coming to do demos and hand out lots of cool stuff,” said Ellen November, director of Skatepark PV, which is putting on the event, in a previous interview.
Skatepark PV has strongly supported the construction of a skatepark on the Peninsula and is raising money to build one.
Girl Skateboard Company, a well-known skateboarding distributing company based in Torrance, will be at the event along with one of their professional skaters Rick Howard.
Rancho Palos Verdes city officials currently are for a skatepark.
