Following a fun first year, neighbor Lola Star, aka Dianna Carlin, is bringing her roller skating parties back to Prospect Park starting this week, and continuing Fridays through October.
The roller skating dynamo who ran the Dreamland Roller Rink in Coney Island from 2008-2010, returns to Lakeside with a calendar of evening parties for adults 21 and over, featuring a variety of themes — from ’70s disco to Xanadu to goth — encouraging skaters to dress up to enjoy dance competitions, DJs, prizes, and giveaways. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy the rink-side lounge and bar.
Skating goes from 7:30-10pm, and tickets, which are $18 per person and include skate rental, can be purchased online — note that events sold out last year, and that ticketholders are given first access through 8:45pm, at which point walk-ups may be admitted if there’s space.
