There’s a new skating rink in West Jackson

A few years ago, when the movies Roll Bounce and ATL hit the scene, it made you want to go skating.  You know, the good old fashioned kind of skating with the flashing lights, loud music, and timid newbie skaters who became well acquainted with the wooden floor.

There was one problem–Jackson (the city itself) didn’t have a skating rink. So those who wanted to skate had to venture over to Clinton or Pearl to get their skate on. Jackson residents Craig and Kavivah Bradley decided that something had to be done about this.

A couple of months ago, the married couple opened The Palace Skate Rink in the Miller Center on Ellis Avenue. This isn’t the couple’s first venture into business. They already own C & K Phone and Tax Services–a business that has three locations in Jackson. This is, however, their first venture into the world of family entertainment, but the couple is excited about the possibilities.

More than anything, they are excited about being able to offer Jackson residents a place to skate within the city.

So if you’re looking to lace up your skates and glide across the floor in the city of Jackson, look no further than the Palace Skate Rink. By the way, I never did get the whole skating backwards thing down, so I may need a quick lesson!

There will be about 125 to 150 people there so could there be a deposite made to go on it. Also, where can we get those fliers made for my b-day?

      Hey Trey! Thanks for stopping by the site! While we were happy to spread the word about The Palace Skating Rink, we don’t have details on services that they may offer such as adult skate sessions. Give them a call at 601-862-9295 and they’ll be able to give you the inside scoop.
