The Frisch’s Mobile Roller Rink, in partnership with 3CDC, will return this weekend for the BLINK festival.

According to a press release, the nearly 9,000-square-foot rink will be open from 4-11 p.m. on Oct. 13 and 14 and noon-11 p.m. on Oct. 15 and 16 at Court Street Plaza in Downtown.

Aside from roller skating, there will also be music all day and night, with a DJ and light show taking place after dark. Frisch’s will also be serving glow-in-the-dark milkshakes and merchandise on Oct. 14 and 15, according to a press release. 

The Frisch's Mobile Roller Rink originally debuted over Memorial Day weekend to honor Frisch's 75th anniversary, with a nostalgic nod to how popular roller skating was back when the local chain was founded.

Admission is $5, which includes a skate rental. Reservations can be made in advance, and walk-ups are also welcome.

BLINK takes place from Oct. 13-16 in downtown Cincinnati and Covington.
