The X Games are having a party and everyone's invited.

The X Games 15 Quinceañera party will begin at 3 p.m. Thursday at L.A. Live to herald the opening of ticket sales for the 15th annual X Games.

The street celebration will feature appearances and autograph sessions by numerous athletes, including MotoX stars Todd Potter, Ronnie Faisst and Kyle Loza plus Olympic silver medalist and Winter X Games Snowboarder X gold medalist Lindsey Jacobellis.

There will also be a skateboard street demonstration by X Games boarders Paul Rodriguez Jr., Terry Kennedy, Amy Caron and Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins.

Attendees can check out the world's largest skateboard, which is more than 36 feet long, and also get an opportunity to design their own skate deck.

Correlating with the Quinceañera theme, vendors will be offering churros, tacos and burritos for sale, plus  a mariachi band will perform.

X Games 15 will be held July 30-Aug. 2 in Los Angeles and will feature some of the hottest global athletes competing in MotoX, BMX Freestyle, Rally car racing and other events.
