The roller rink had special hours Monday to accommodate kids and families whose schools were canceled due to the frigid weather. The normal days for the rink are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Jen Kallieris of Libertyville brought her family to the rink for some exercise.

"We came to escape the winter blues and head inside for some nostalgia," said Kallieris. Kallieris and her sister, Amy Stilling, are lifetime Libertyville residents and have been going to the roller rink in Mundelein since they were kids.

Just for Fun Roller Rink announced they would be open on Monday during a party hosting the Lake County Adventures Guides and Princesses on Sunday.
