October 23, 2019

Last Outdoor Roller Skating Event of the Year Rolls Into North Van on November 1st

Vancouver, BC – Ghouls, goblins, ghosts and witches will all be grooving on eight wheels on Friday, November 1st, and the gorgeous new 12,000 square foot outdoor public skating rink at The Shipyards in North Vancouver will be the perfect backdrop for this fun, family-friendly party. 

Hosts Rollerskate Vancouver and Rolla Skate Club are thrilled to be closing out the outdoor roller skating season at this state-of-the art venue. “Our event attendance has been increasing steadily throughout the year, so this huge new venue is perfect for us,” says organizer Andrea Fraser-Winsby. “Affordable, accessible venues are few and far between in this city, so Lower Mainland roller skaters are so thankful to be able to do what we love in this beautiful space.”

There will be two skating shifts: the early skate is 5-7pm, and the late skate goes from 7:30-10pm. All ages are welcome at both shifts.

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

About Rollerskate Vancouver

Rollerskate Vancouver was started in 2017 when Andrea Fraser-Winsby retired from playing competitive roller derby but missed the skating. She met other Vancouverites who also wanted to skate but had no place to do it. A few social Seawall skates quickly turned into fun and funky skate parties that Vancouver roller skaters have been craving.

About Rolla Skate Club

Rolla Skate Club is creating a global movement to empower women, and they’re using roller skates to do it. They want women to be as powerful in their life, community and business as they are on their roller skates. From beginner to roller dance, roller derby, skate park or the sea wall, they’ll get you rolling with their skating classes offered 6 days a week in Vancouver.
