VIDEO: Cal Skate Closes on High Note

After 34 years in business, Milpitas' roller skating rink held its last skate session on July 31.

Skating fans packed the final farewell skate on July 31, reliving the memories. Some were adults who skated in their youth, others were former employees, and there were even couples who met their spouses at the roller skating rink. Here's our last video on Cal Skate of Milpitas' last day of business featuring Chris St. Germain who took over the family business with her brother Trace from their parents.

I love the tribute, put me to tears. I have been working there since 2002 and it truly has been a pleasure being apart of the experience and the history. I enjoyed all the people who had a good time and all the memories that have been created. Cal-Skate will never be forgotten.
