KVUE — For one night in September, the Domain Northside is going to let the good times roll, and you're invited.

Three streets — Domain Boulevard, Rock Rose Avenue, and Palm Way — will partially close and transform into an outdoor glow-in-the-dark roller skating rink. Here's a map of the planned rink.

Domain Northside is hosting the GR8 SK8 in partnership with Nordstrom and Archer Hotel on September 8 from 6-10 pm. Music, prizes, swag, a photo booth, and refreshments will be available at this family-friendly event. Local roller derby legends the Texas Rollergirls are also scheduled to make an appearance.

All businesses located at Domain Northside will remain open, according to the event page. Attendees can also learn about the Austin Angels, a local nonprofit that supports children in foster care and their caregivers, during a special activation station. 

The GR8 SK8 is free and open to the public, but those who want to go must register online. Skaters can bring their own skates or rent a pair for a suggested donation.
