At Fleetwood Roller Rink, skaters glide across a lustrous 75'x165' floor under a rainbow of vibrant lights that have illuminated patrons for 50 years. Furnished with rental equipment, patrons can swiftly perform tricks or recite the complete works of Homer before refueling with pizza, hot dogs, and candy dispensed from a fully stocked snack shop. The full-service facility is a frequent site of fundraisers and events, and staff members can devise comprehensive birthday party packages that include such merrymaking accouterments as cake, balloons, and tax forms filled out in the style of Mad Libs. Skaters of all experience levels can sharpen their skills during weekly lessons and open skating sessions.

At Mega Beer Fest, an unsuspecting arena becomes the epicenter of a flood of craft beers and saucy barbecue. The fest assembles craft beers from 75 breweries from across the nation and combines them with Porky's Rib Fest, which features barbecue slow-roasted in styles ranging from luscious Texan brisket to Australian barbecue basted in a fruit-based sauce. As guests savor each bubbly beverage, they can also enjoy live entertainment including fireworks, a carnival, and live music, some of which may be played on xylophones created after mass consumption of ribs.

The Riverside Theater Guild's cast of performers aged 8 to adult playfully recreates the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale in its production of Princess and The Pea. Audience members of all ages will hum along with Princess Mabel of Mudville as she sings, dances, and develops an unnerving obsession with legumes en route to the Kingdom of Snob Hill, where her prince awaits. Along with sparking smiles throughout the community, the Guild aims to instill storytelling skills in youngsters by casting local stars-in-training and holding theater camps during the summer.
