It was a beautiful day to be both a skate rat and skate nerd in the city of Lakeland, Florida for Go Skateboarding Day. The Smithsonian, Polk Museum of Art, The Boardr, and IASC teamed up for the Innoskate program and taught everyone new things, regardless of your new or seasoned veteran status as a lifelong skateboarder. Rodney Mullen, Elissa Steamer, Professor Paul Schmitt, and many other Floridians joined in on the fun!
