1,000 skateboarders will takeover Yonge St. this week

Watch out if you're on Yonge this weekend because this Saturday more than 1,000 skateboarders will roll down Toronto's largest street to mark the 13th annual Toronto Board Meeting.

Skateboarders will don white dress shirts and ties but this won't be a stuffy, corporate affair. It's all part of a weekend-long event that celebrates Toronto skateboarders across all ages and skill levels.

According the the Annual Board Meeting Facebook event, those interested in participating will gather at the David. A Balfour Park, located near Yonge and St. Clair. At approximately 4:20, the group will hill drop down Yonge Street wearing dress shirts, ties and of course, helmets.

The skate is the signature event of the The Board Meeting which will unfold over three days from September 11 to 13.
