Halifax’s infamous Pizza Corner turned into a mini water park early Saturday morning due to a major water main break.

Videos posted on social media show one skateboarder riding the current down Blowers Street, with several others running through the spouting water.

Halifax Regional Police are still investigating the cause of the water main break. They say Blowers and Grafton streets will remain closed to vehicle traffic while the investigation is conducted.

Motorists are being asked to use alternative routes.

Police expect the roads to reopen around 5 p.m. Saturday.
