Roller skating has a lot in common with Halloween, and we don’t even have to go too far, or perform too many complicated figure eights or scissor maneuvers, to come to that conclusion.

suit ? The popular recreational activity and the weird October holiday are both super awesome, and by “snazz it up” we mean sparkly socks, colorful tops, and the like.

Candy? You’ll find a candy zone at the snack counter of a classic roller rink, just like you’ll find festive candy in a pumpkin-shaped bucket after a series of tricks.

And orange? Well, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but slide with us: the wheels and orange bumper of a classic rental skate are still reminiscent of the classic Halloween color.

So when the vibes of wicked, whimsical occasion mingle with a special night of roller skating, we’re in for a spooky ride. And that’s exactly what will happen, or perhaps “askate” is more appropriate, at Moonlight Rollerway on the eve of Halloween.

That’s right: it doesn’t happen on Halloween night but rather on October 30, the Sunday just before the haunting holiday.

Guests at Destination Glendale can enjoy three hours of monstrously cheerful music and, yes, the costumes are fine (but read up on the ruleslike that anything you wear “shouldn’t interfere with vision or skates”.)

The Halloween themed skate party may feature some of the Halloween-inspired tunes you love the most, or you might discover a cool, spooky song you love. That’s the beauty of those seasonal hits that come back every year: some you know by heart and others that suddenly capture your fancy for the first time.

General admission is $19, and if you need skates, you can rent them “at the door” for seven dollars.
