September 13, 1990 — What do you get when you combine the clank of roller skates, giggles, a juke box and pizza? A night at Skate City is the only possible answer.
The Luray roller rink, now in its 10th year of operation under the Ed Showalter family, opened again for the fall season Friday night.
Over 40 area youths were at the rink skating, playing pool and eating pizza at the snack bar on opening night.
“We find that when school is in session is our best time,” said Eddie Showalter, the proprietor. “When school is out kids seem to find other things to do.”
