The Rochester Downtown Alliance just announced some of the details for a new event which is being planned for Saturday, October 9th in downtown Rochester. "Roller Disco" will turn the downtown area into a gigantic outdoor skating rink.

Kanika Couchene, RDA's director of events & strategic partnerships, said, “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.”
