The Dead River Derby is getting set for their first home bout this weekend. The ladies from Dead River Derby will be taking on the Escanaba Rolling Hellcats this Saturday at the Lakeview Arena in Marquette. With this being their first home bout, they're hoping for some community support.
"Roller derby is amazing; who wouldn't want to see girls on skates and watch them hitting each other. We will have beer and wine available, a bounce house for the kids. It's going to be a huge event. We would love for everybody to be there," said Janelle Buttery of the Dead River Derby.
The bout begins at 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets at the door will be $10.
