Roller Night Fever will be taking over the sports complex.
A pop-up roller skating event will be in the Pass on June 2 at the Crowsnest Sports Complex.
Roller Night Fever will be taking over the sports complex with the help of Crowsnest Pass Family Community Support Services (FCSS). FCSS Programmer Kim Lewis said she is always keeping her eyes open for new ideas to bring the community together.
Lewis explained how their goal is to “get people out and actively engaged” while having fun with their families.
“FCSS is about community and social well-being. I like to find new ideas and new activities that appeal to various people,” said Lewis, “There seems to be a really good response to this. People seem excited about it and I’m excited about it.”
The event will be hosted by Calgary Roller Skate, which is described on their website as “a mobile skate company that run pop up events, classes and more” in a variety of locations. They are bringing a “big trailer full of roller skates” which will be free for the community.
“We’re covering all the costs, even the cost for roller skate rentals is free,” said Lewis.
Anyone under the age of 18 requires a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. The waiver is available online ahead of the event on June 2 to allow for permission to be given easily.
The roller night is on a “first come, first served” basis with around 200 pairs of skates being available. Helmets and safety gear are recommended and will not be provided.
“We’ve got a light show for the arena and some music, it should be fun,” added Lewis.
The Roller Night Fever is from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 2 at the Crownest Sports Complex.
“We’re pretty excited about it. Depending on the response, we’d like to do it again,” said Lewis.
She also mentioned the free community barbecue on June 1 at Gazebo Park in Blairmore with the first outdoor market of the season. There will be free burgers and hot dogs, entertainment, a bouncy castle and more.
