Rollerskate Vancouver returns to the city to host another season of fun eight-wheel events at the Robson Square Ice Rink.
There is a party on Saturday May 11 in Vancouver with a Family Skate from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thereafter, the rink will host a game of Roller Derby from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Finally, the evening will end with an animated Roller Skate Party from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Hosted by DJ K-Tel, the rock-themed evening will be for adults only.
Rentals are available at the rink, but sizes are limited. Accordingly, guests are encouraged to purchase tickets and reserve skates in advance online.
“With the huge turnout we had at our events last summer, it’s clear that Vancouverites want to get away from real life for a few hours to feel the wheels on their feet and the wind in their hair,” explains organizer Andrea Fraser-Winsby.
“We are so grateful to have the support of the roller skating community and Robson Square for these events, especially because Vancouver roller skaters now have so few places to do what they love.”
Rollerskate Vancouver will also host a number of other events this summer and fall at the Robson Square Ice Rink on May 11, June 9, July 6, August 30, September 14 and October 5.
