PLATTSBURGH - The North Country Lumber Jills, Plattsburgh's flat track roller derby team, will host two events this Saturday, May 21, at Gilligan's Getaway, 7160 State Route 9.
The first will be a Zumbathon from 2 to 4 p.m. The Lumber Jills, in conjunction with local area Zumba instructors, invite the public to join skaters while local instructors fuse hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program. Through competition, community service, and fundraising events like Zumbathon, the team dedicates their time to furthering the understanding of roller derby.
The cost of admission for the Zumbathon will be an $8 donation at the door.
That evening, the Lumber Jills will host "Ex-DRAG-aganza," a drag show featuring the Haus of STARR with special guests Nae Nae Dominatrix Le Roe and Luna Vixxen. The event is scheduled to take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission will be $7 at the door.
Team merchandise will be available for purchase during both events, with all proceeds to benefit the Lumber Jills.
