There’s going to be one last chance to lace up and rollerskate at Stardust in Surrey on July 8th and after the doors close for good, the whole building will be gone forever. If you were a Stardust regular, celebrated a birthday there, attended a class party there, did a rollathon, air band battle, or all night skate – the Downtown Surrey BIA wants to know your story in their Memories of Stardust contest.
Memories of Stardust Contest
Did you take roller skating lessons at Stardust? Do you remember the horse races and limbo on roller skates? Did you win a prize for doing the hokey pokey or bird dance?
Where did you go after skating? Fresgos, Olympia, White Spot (or McDonalds after the All Night Skate)? Did you work at Stardust? Who was your favourite Stardust Staff member? Did you meet or significant other at Stardust? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have a memory of Stardust.
Share your funny, sad, goofy, poignant, or just a memory that reflects how Stardust played a role in your life and you could win prizes such as a gift certificate for Central City (previously known as Surrey Place), a gift certificate for Fresgos, and a gift certificate for White Spot.
To enter, simply email your Memories of Stardust to:
with the subject line “Memories of Stardust Contest”.
Make sure to include your name, email, and which rink you are referencing (it could be Guildford, Whalley, North Van or Richmond). You can also send in a photo, with a caption. Entries are being accepted until July 8, 2017.
The Last Skate
The Weststone Group, the new property owners of the iconic Stardust property, would like to pay tribute to Stardust by hosting a series of free family skates and one by donation skate for all ages. Three of the skates are going to be free admission with a ticket required. The last skate of the evening will be a $5 ticket fee with the proceeds going to the Surrey Food Bank’s Tiny Bundles program. View the Facebook event here.
