Last year, for the first time ever, Roller Disco showed up in Rochester, Minnesota and it was a HUGE hit!  Families, kids, and adults all showed up and enjoyed the roller rink set up in the Peace Plaza while the music was blasting and the disco ball was spinning.  Well, Southeast Minnesota, get ready, because it is all happening again in a few weeks but with a new twist!


Roller Disco Is Back in Rochester With a New Twist

Save the dates because October 7th and 8th are going to be full of fun in downtown Rochester.  Ok, I should say, "full of skating" in downtown Rochester.  Last year, skaters enjoyed free skate rentals, a DJ, some amazing vendors, and a black and white checkered roller skating rink.

After every downtown event put on by the Rochester Downtown Alliance, feedback is asked by those in attendance and the words written are looked at carefully to see how future events can be improved.  In the case of the Roller Disco, several of the comments indicated that more room to skate would be helpful.  And so this year, there is a new twist to the Roller Disco event - a new location!
