Rollerskating on this Sunday

Are you ready to relive the glory days of strapping on quad skates to thumpin’ beats with a disco ball gleaming overhead?

Are you ready to relive the glory days of strapping on quad skates to thumpin’ beats with a disco ball gleaming overhead?

This Sunday at the CRI (Cumberland Recreational Institute), the second Skate-O-Rama is happening. Live DJs will spin tracks for you to groove to.

If you can find some old-school rollerskates, bring them on down — or if you can’t, bring your inline skates on out for a roll around the track. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. and and the event runs until 4, with basic instruction on rollerskating from the Dodge City Rollers ’til 2:30 p.m.

There are a few pairs of skates to lend, by donation, if you show up early. Also, if you would like to help, donations of rollerskates will be accepted at the concession during the skate.

With the community’s support and continued donations of rollerskates, organizers hope to host a monthly open skate.

So remember, this Sunday, Jan. 23, 1:30 to 4 p.m. (optional instruction from 1:30 to 2:30). Admission is $3 for ages 12 and younger, and $5 for ages 13 and older.
