Frisch’s Mobile Roller Rink Opens on Fountain Square

Lace up your rollerblades and head to Fountain Square to skate on Frisch’s 4,300-square-foot rink—and when it’s not being used as a roller rink, it transforms into a pickleball court. Skate Sound Clash, an Open Skate DJ Battle, follows Saturday’s rollout party at 6 p.m. as WIZ 101.1’s DJ J. Dough faces off against The Beat 102.3’s Tarren Bland. You can reserve a slot for skating or pickleball here, and you’ll have the chance to skate Wednesdays through Sundays all through April.
