NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) --- When you’re best friends, it’s easier to be yourself.

That’s the reason why Andre Vincent-Williams and Quentin Taylor had so much fun at the region’s first outdoor roller rink.

It opened outside of MacArthur Center Thursday, and the two freestyle roller skaters couldn’t wait to show off their skills in front of the public.

“It’s one of my biggest stress relievers,” said Vincent-Williams. “And it keeps me out of trouble.”

“We listen to the music and go off a beat,” said Taylor.

While the two friends came to enjoy their favorite hobby Friday, it was their friendship that took center stage.

“We’re family,” said Taylor. “Always together.

You can also take advantage of the outdoor roller rink this summer.

MacArthur Center has a full listing of prices and hours on their website.
