Things Got Rowdy at the Kingshighway Skate Park

This Independence Day brought St. Louis' skateboarders, punks, heshers and other freaks of nature to the Kingshighway guerrilla skate park for a no-holds-barred party, featuring performances by psych-rockers Bug Chaser and scum-punks the Supermen. With the bridge scheduled for demolition today, the event served as a last hurrah for the long-celebrated park. In keeping, things got a bit wild. All photos by Daniel Hill.
