ON Video featuring "LOVE Story"Hundreds of skateboarders and skate activists will converge on Philadelphiašs University Of The Arts on Saturday, November 22 for the world premiere of the ON Video Winter 2004 issue, featuring "LOVE Story," a 35-minute segment on Love Park (JFK Plaza).
Love Story covers the evolution of skateboarding at Love Park, compiling the best footage from the last decade and telling the story through interviews with some of Love's most notable locals, as well as local activists who've taken up the skateboarders' cause: Bam Margera, Ricky Oyola, Kerry Getz, Stevie Williams, Edmund Bacon, Josh Kalis, Scott Kip, Tim O'Connor, Greg Heller, and more. The rise of Love Park as a world-famous skate spot, the talent of the skaters who rode there, the conflict between skateboarders and City Hall, and the struggle to return skateboarding to Love Park are all covered, including the October 5 Free Love Park Rally.
Thanks to the help of the Skateboard Advocacy Network, Philadelphiašs own coalition of skatersš rights advocates, ON Video is premiering the Winter 2004 issue in Philadelphia for the skaters of Love Park before rolling it out with regional premieres across the country. We encourage you to attend and to see that the campaign to open Love Park to skateboarding is still very active and has attracted worldwide attention.
