Get ready to roll: for one Saturday only, the first-ever Sun Skate Rollerskating Festival is gliding into Milton Park. With Brisbane's own Roller Dance Australia behind the new event, this fest isn't just about strapping some wheels to your feet. Rather, making shapes while wearing skates is the main attraction — complete with a Boogie Nights-themed roller disco.

Taking place from 12–8pm on Saturday, December 9, Sun Skate is an all-ages affair except for the disco, which is open for attendees aged 16 and over. While it's technically free to head along to, in most instances you will pay to hit the rink. An hour-long session costs $10, as does skate hire. Getting your Boogie Nights on will set you back $25, while a full day pass other than the disco is $30.

There are ways to put your skates on without opening your wallet, however. So, look out for the Zumba class, beginners' skating class and dance jam.

Also on offer: markets, food trucks, a skate maintenance workshop, yoga, a treasure hunt and a dog park, plus activities for kids.
