FAIRMONT, W.Va. (WBOY) — Fairmont is getting a roller rink! Retro Skate will have skating, bounce attractions, food, dancing, throwback music and even drinks once it gets its alcohol permit.
Located at 1228 Country Club Rd. in Fairmont, the rink is scheduled to open for the first time on Friday, Oct. 6. The opening celebration will be from 6:30 p.m. to midnight with an adult-only skate after 9:30 p.m.
