MANILA (Reuters) - Hundreds of Filipinos skated down a main avenue in Manila before executing flips and tricks at a newly opened skate park, as part of international "Go Skateboarding Day" on Tuesday.

The annual festival, started in 2004 by the International Association of Skateboard Companies in California, gives enthusiasts a chance to have fun, celebrate their passion and promote safe skating.
