Did you know every Friday night in Paris is roller skating night? Pari Roller has been going since 1994 and is held every Friday from 9:30 pm to Midnight. It normally starts near Montparnasse Railway Station and is a circular skating route through Paris at night. It is only cancelled in bad weather. And best of all, it's free to participate.
For example tonight (10th September 2021) the journey starts at Montparnasse Railway Station, has a break at Louvre Museum, finishing back at Montparnasse Railway Station covering a distance of 20.62 km.
Since 2019 the 'hike' has been open to other forms of mobility, be it human or electric powered, but these forms of travel are requested to stay behind the skaters. The French Police and Pari Roller volunteers supervise the procession with the police forming a safety bubble to the front and rear of the skaters. It is manadatory now to wear a face mask in these Covid times, but it is wonderful to see the event is still being held.
It looks like a lot of fun and now I really wish I could roller skate!
So to celebrate the wonderful Pari Roller we've added four lovely photos from Starla of her Skater Sindys. As you can see there is some nice variations here with both 2nd Gens and Sad Faces. If you have a different girl, please do send us a photo. Thank you again to Starla for your generosity in sharing!
