Get ready for a 70s-style blast from the past when Pogo Park hosts its “Throwback Skate Party” Friday, May 24 from 4-8 p.m. at Pogo Park #1/Elm Playlot in Richmond.

Community members can bring their own skates or rollerblades, or rent some wheels ($2), and enjoy a roll around the park to music by DJ Marquee Anderson. Popcorn ($1) and lemonade ($1) will be on hand, as will an opportunity to capture the moment in a photo booth ($2).

The organization cautions that the event is only open to the use of skates and rollerblades—no bikes, skateboards, scooters or Heelys are allowed.

The nonprofit behind the event helped transform its destination park into the beautiful, multifaceted community resource it is today in Richmond’s Iron Triangle.

Pogo Park #1/Elm Playlot is located at 720 Elm Ave. in Richmond. Questions? Contact Pogo Park at (510) 215-5500.
