PHOTOS: Stardust reunion skates wrap up in Surrey

Stardust was a landmark for generations, the place to be for thousands of kids. With three reunion events, it made a brief comeback of sorts

Photos from the Stardust reunion events held in Surrey this month.

This Saturday night was the last of three Stardust reunion skates planned by longtime Surrey resident Krissy Williams.

With its flashing lights, laser beams, spinning disco ball and blaring music, Whalley’s Stardust roller rink drew huge crowds for decades.

Before closing in 2005, it was a landmark for generations, the place to be for thousands of kids. Now, the Stardust is making a comeback of sorts.

In its prime, hundreds of teens flocked to the venue on a typical Friday or Saturday night to strap on a pair of roller skates and glide around the polished floor.

Williams told the Now she had a small gathering in mind when she created a Facebook group, “Stardust ’80s and ’90s Reunion.”

But nostalgia took over.

The group now has more than 2,600 members and all three events quickly sold out.
