Spreading the “Rolligion” to Santa Barbara

The Godfather of Skating (San Francisco) is making news in Santa Barbara, California with a week-long event called “Holiday Shop N Roll.” #shopnroll

Organizers have turned the Earl Warren Show Grounds into a funky roller disco floor, surrounded by local artisans and delicious local, organic food offerings.
