Roller Disco event coming to downtown Rochester in October

By Ethan Humble

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

The event will feature high-energy music, skate rentals, party lighting and a disco ball. It will include family, teen and adult skate hours.

The temporary outdoor roller rink, which has been featured at large-scale events like Coachella, will be installed for one day at a downtown location yet to be determined.

“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.
