Escape to a sun-kissed paradise at our tropical getaway extravaganza! Embrace the spirit of adventure and dress like a tourist. Get those socks, sandals, and fanny packs ready! Head to our Art Studio and get creative as you craft your own sea shell masterpiece, a souvenir from your tropical escape. Then, limbo your way onto our outdoor patio to test your flexibility as you shimmy under the pole to the rhythm of island-inspired beats. Feel the thrill of friendly competition as you grab a Bridge friend and play in our water balloon toss! A progressive punk band, stop.drop.rewind will also be coming in to play some live music for us. Buona and Rainbow Cone will be bringing vibrant flavors to the night. It’s our summer kick-off event so get ready for some fun inside and outside!
