Like learning to use chopsticks, roller-skating takes patience, dedication, and a particularly dexterous set of toes. Show off how flexible your feet are with today's Groupon: for $16, you get admission and roller skate rental for four (up to a $32 value) at SummerSkate in Broomfield.
At SummerSkate, rollers of all ages cruise an outdoor rink at their leisure seven days a week (a $3-$5 value per admission, depending on age). After renting skates (a $3 value per person), available in sizes from a toddler's 10 to an adult's 14, skaters can orbit the sleek arena as long as they'd like, trying their best at skating backwards and imagining the sun is a giant disco ball in the sky. Check the website for hours, and bring socks along for the ride, or purchase a pair at the rink ($2.50). Free parking allows customers to save their change for jukeboxes and quarter-addicted wishing wells.
Boulder Creek Events
At amphitheaters, parks, and ice rinks throughout the city, Boulder Creek Events organizes get-togethers to inspire and connect community members. Each year, they bring more than 500 food vendors together with musicians and carnival rides for the Boulder Creek Festival. They also coordinate classic car shows and outdoor skating events. During the winter, BCE Productions fuels ice skaters with warm concessions, and during the summer the crew transforms the Twenty Ninth Street Plaza into a rink ideal for roller skates and guests with the latest trend in wheeled pedicures.
