RDA announces new event: Roller Disco

ROCHESTER, Minn.—The Rochester Downtown Alliance’s newest event, Roller Disco, will temporarily turn downtown into an outdoor roller-skating rink October 9.

Roller Disco will feature high energy music, skate rentals, party lighting, and a disco ball and will include family, teen, and adult skate hours. The temporary outdoor roller rink, which has been featured at large scale national events like Coachella, will be installed for one day at a to-be-determined downtown location.

“Roller skating has made a comeback recently and we hope Rochester really embraces this new program. We envision an exuberant, welcoming event that appeals to all ages, including 12- to 18-year-olds, a demographic we haven’t always served in the past,” said Kanika Couchene, RDA director of events & strategic partnerships.

Roller Disco event partners include Winona State University, Rochester and KTTC TV.
