Hundreds of roller derby enthusiasts, skaters, hard-hitting games, vendors, and various other skate-inspired festivities will fill the Wildwoods Convention Center on Saturday, August 29 for the Seventh Annual Colossal Coastal Roller Derby Expo.
Male and female roller derby skaters throughout the country are scheduled to participate in the games using the Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor Rule Set. Tournaments begin at 1 p.m. with the main event all-star game beginning at 6 p.m.
