Strap on your skates for a night of live music, pulsing lights and roller skating in downtown Providence.

The Providence Rink at Bank Newport City Center is planning a super fun summer in the city, complete with roller disco nights on Thursday and Friday nights from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Roller skating is already open to the public every Thursday and Friday night at the rink during those hours, but starting June 3, the nighttime skating gets kicked up a notch. If I wasn't a completely terrible roller skater, I would be all over this because it sounds so darn fun.

The rink will be lit up with pulsing lights and a spinning disco ball to set the vibe. Then live acts and live DJs will play the tunes to skate to.

To top it all off, Trinity Beer Garden is there with beverages and snacks to really set the party atmosphere.

I can only hope people throw on some Day-Glo and really go for it on these roller disco nights – but it's not the only summer fun taking place at The Providence Rink.

The venue will also host outdoor family movie nights throughout the season.

They kicked the movies off with a showing of The Mighty Ducks a few weeks ago, but are still bringing Frozen, Raya and the Last Dragon, Coco and Soul to the venue between now and September 18, definitely all movies I know my kids would love to watch outside on a nice summer night.

All of these summer events are by reservation only, which can be made on The Providence Rink website, and skates are available to rent for all ages.

So practice all your favorite Roll Bounce moves now and get ready to show them off at the Roller Disco starting June 3.
