Final Friday OTR Skate – Halloween Edition
Join Far-I-Rome Productions in collaboration with the Cincinnati Film Festival and the Cincinnati Rollergirls for the Halloween edition of the Final Friday OTR Skate! The fourth and final OTR Skate of 2011 takes place October 28, 2011 at the Over-the-Rhine Recreation Center, 1715 Republic St., Cincinnati, OH 45202.
In the spirit of Halloween, costumes are encouraged (tip: avoid costumes that could get caught under someone’s skates!). The OTR Rec Center will also be taking new and gently used Halloween costumes and bagged candy for kids at the Rec Center.
The Cincinnati Rollergirls will be on site to offer 5-minute skate lessons and demos, and the Cincinnati Film Festival will be screening scary short films by local filmmakers. The OTR Skate will feature DJ sets by DJs Apryl Reign and Diamonn Gurr, free Wii, ping pong, pool and foosball and an after party at the Drinkery starting at 11 pm.
Cover for the OTR Skate is $3, which includes skate rentals. Proceeds benefit the Over-the-Rhine Recreation Center to fund youth programming. The OTR Skate is an 18 and up event.
