Lloyd’s Roller Rink may be gone, but its spirit lives on.
Enthusiastic roller skaters in the city have banded together to create Calgary’s next big roller-skating night, and have organized an upcoming event at the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre.

The event, titled Roller Skating is Staying Alive, will take place on Sunday, March 11, and encourages skaters of all skill levels to attend, enjoy free skating lessons, and skate along to music provided by a live DJ.
This first skate will unfortunately be BYOS (Bring Your Own Skates), though proceeds from tickets sold at this event will be going towards purchasing skates to rent out at future events.
Anyone hoping to go for a few laps will need to lace-up and head over to the Chinese Cultural Centre from noon to 6 pm for the family skate, or from 6 to 10 pm for the evening skate party.
It may not quite be the magic that was found at Lloyd’s, but we’re sure it will be a close second.
When: Sunday, March 11, 2018
Time: Noon to 6 pm for the family skate, 6 to 10 pm for the evening skate party
Where: Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre – 197 1st Street SW, Calgary
Tickets: Available online, $15 for adults, $10 for kids
