Remember last summer when roller skating took over the internet? No matter where you turned, there were folks on skates twirling the day away. Hey – it’s great exercise AND a fabulous skill to pick up in quarantine, so we can’t say we’re surprised by its popularity. Well, this year Toronto’s roller skating game is reaching all new levels because Retro Rolla is coming to town.

Retro Rolla is an incredible throwback pop-up dedicated to, you guessed it, roller skating! They’ve got a travelling vintage retro trailer and gorgeous skates that they take city to city to bring on the summer fun. You can see where this is going, right? Toronto is their next destination!
