A pop-up rollerskate event is set to take over the rink at Robson Square in downtown Vancouver next month.
Presented by Rollerskate Vancouver, the party will hit the popular public plaza on April 20, and will feature a full lineup of events to mark the occasion.
“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,” said 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.”
The good times start at 4 pm with the All-Ages Family Skate, a roller derby bout presented by Rolla Skate Club at 6 pm.
Then, from 7 pm to 10 pm, there will be disco-themed adult-skate, featuring tunes from DJ K-Tel.
Rental skates will be available, provided by the Rolla Skate Club truck, but sizes are limited. Skaters are encouraged to purchase tickets and reserve skates in advance at rollerskatevancouver.com/events.
This is just one of many pop-up roller skating events happening at Robson Square this season; Rollerskate Vancouver has a full schedule planned throughout the summer and fall with events on May 11, June 9, July 6, August 30, September 14, and October 5.
When: April 20, 2019
