Seasonal Special Happenings

"Park 'n Roll" Skate and Cookie Festival

When: Sat., Sept. 24 2011

Cookies and skating may seem like an odd coupling for some. "It's a great pairing to me," says Portage Skate's first mate Rachel Adkins, "skating and cookies are a couple of the best things life has to offer! We really want anyone who has ever had wheels on their feet or a cookie in their mouth to come out and have some fun!" At the "Park 'n Roll" Skate and Cookie Festival, you'll have just that. The festivities begin with a heated 6 mile race around Kent State University's campus, followed by several professional skating exhibitions. A cookie bake-off will take place all day, churning out cookies on a first come, first serve basis. Portage Skates is located at 1260 Munroe Falls Kent Rd. in Kent.
