October is National Roller Skating Month at Sky-Vue Skateland!
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan declared October to be National Roller Skating Month. For
38 years, Sky-Vue Skateland has been celebrating this love for skating with family and friends
at the Rocky Mount, NC icon.
This year’s theme is “Roller Skating is the Original Social Network”. That theme rings true for
families and friends who have gathered at the rink for generations. They often celebrate
birthdays, and achievements as well as just spending time together as a family.
