When: Saturday, 8 October - 4:00pm
Where: Chinatown Car Park , 31 Duncan St, Fortitude Valley
How much: FREE
Disco music, Venice Beach in Los Angeles, short shorts. They all have one thing in common: ROLLER SKATES. The novelty of wheeled shoes may have began as a fad, but as it has lasted the tenuous distance of time it is fair to say it’s earned itself the admiration of many, the ability to excite and the title of hip.
With most roller rinks having closed their doors these days, skate enthusiasts have been having a hard time locating a place that they can meet their comrades for a spin. But! No more tears need to be shed as for the first time in Valley Fiesta history, the Chinatown Car Park rooftop is being taken over for the Red Bull Roller Disco.
Giving people the opportunity to try out their 70s dance moves, hopefully wear flares and speedily skate away if rejected by the opposite sex, the night is sure to be one to remember. The best part is, if you can’t BYO skates, they are providing plenty of pairs for free! With music by DJs Cutloose, The Nice Guys and DJ Butcher, not to mention the fact that Red Bull is hosting the night, you can guarantee that this evening will not be a dud. And if wheeled shoes aren’t your thing, at least the view of the Valley from a rooftop will be something to brag about.
