Rollerskate Vancouver returns to the city to host another fun-filled season of events on eight wheels at the Robson Square rink.

A party takes place on Saturday, May 11 in Vancouver with a Family Skate from 4 pm until 6 pm. Following this, the rink will host a Roller Derby Game from 6 pm to 7 pm. Last, the evening will conclude with a lively Roller Skate Party from 7 pm until 10 pm. Hosted by DJ K-Tel, the rock-themed party will be for adults only.

Rentals are available at the rink, but sizes are limited. As a result, 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 escape real life for a couple of hours to feel the wheels on their feet and the wind in their hair,” says 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 into the fall at the Robson Square rink on May 11, June 9, July 6, August 30, September 14 and October 5.
