'Game of Skate' brings hundreds to village.

Nyack's "Game of Skate" brought boarders to the village's downtown on Saturday, turning the Main Street parking lot into a skate park.

Over 100 skaters—young and old—attended the fete, said Sarah Anderson, who helped organize the event. Anderson, a Nyacker, is married to an avid skateboarders, and one of her two children is picking up the sport.

The day included sponsors and prizes.

The purpose of this event was to raise awareness of skateboarding as a positive recreational sport that will bring people of all ages and demographics together if Nyack provides a designated place for people to skate. The event was a success and indeed demonstrated this.
