Friday Night Fever

In 2009 while visiting Paris we attended Pari-Roller on Friday Night. Pari-Roller is the world’s largest skating event but similar events occur in other European cities. The skaters begin to gather at Gare Montparnasse around 9:30 and get the week’s skating route. At 10 P.M. close to 10,000 skaters have gathered and begin to skate through the city until 3 A.M. Some dress in costumes, some are part of teams and some just come to watch, like me.

This guy was such a good skater I made a T-Shirt out of him but it also works well as a poster. I am happy that the terrorist events in Paris have not forced an end to this tradition. Viva La France!

Similar events occur in other european cities, but none as large as the Paris event which happens every Friday night but should be special tonight because of the French Open. The skaters begin to gather at Gare Montparnasse around 9:30 and get the week’s skating route. At 10 P.M. close to 10,000 skaters have gathered and begin to skate through the city until 3 A.M. Some dress in costumes, some are part of teams and some just come to watch, like me. This guy was the best and you can buy a T-shirt by clicking here.
