Wheels up! Are you ready for a blast from the past?

Uptown Shopping Centre is hosting an epic FREE night of family friendly fun this Friday, August 14th right on the boulevard – and you’re invited!

Rollerskate Victoria will be providing the rollerskates – or you can bring your own! – and from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., you can cruise in style with your closest pals; physical distancing style, of course.

Not only can you partake in the skate yourself, there will be two lives performances to feast your eyes on during the event – one by Rollerskate Victoria, and another by the Mini Rollers, a group of rollers under 13.

Roller skating is making a huge comeback this summer, with more and more options than ever to have fun, get fit, and meet new friends while you do it.

Recently, a portion of Uptown Boulevard has been allocated as a Pedestrian walkway to provide guests the proper spacing to practice physical distancing.

Pedestrians are encouraged to walk along Uptown Boulevard, leaving the sidewalks available for retailer line-ups.

Uptown Boulevard will remain closed from Famous Footwear to The North Face, and vehicular access to the Boulevard will be limited to the Carey Road and Douglas Street entrances.

Uptown has committed to remaining a safe and healthy place for all guests amid COVID-19, and has implemented many safety measures at their shopping centre. You can take a look at their full safety plan here.
