Celebrate Friday the 13th. Not with a scary superstitious party but at a futuristic space-themed disco in Ipswich for the tots to teens. At the Neon Space Party, there will be laser lights and Top 40 music. A well-known local DJ will get the kids up dancing. If they get tired of dancing, there will be a giant jumping castle just for a change of pace. And it gives the local kids somewhere safe to go and have fun. An added bonus is that there will be a face painter on hand, so you can get the kids' faces painted to match their costume for an extra $5.00.
There will also be raffles and the amazing first prize is a FREE Glitter Party at your place! There will be other prizes too, including a lucky door prize and the best dancer prize, plus balloons, and many surprises. Cosplay (costume play) is in. Kids are encouraged to dress up as there will be a prize for the best space-themed costume and they are going to have a photographer there to record the great spacey clothes. What will your kids wear? Some space outfit ideas are:
NASA astronaut uniforms
Star Wars characters (Have you seen the new Star Wars movie yet? Don't miss it!)
Star Trek (all you Trekkie parents at the 'Switch')
Robots (think cardboard and metres of Alfoil)
Aliens of all races
Buzz Lightyear (to Infinity and beyond ... )
Remember, the more colourful the better, and NEON is the buzz word.
Local man, Glen Caloon, is bringing along his much-loved and futuristic props. What makes them memorable is that they are out of this world. Glen said that he began by making props for his two sons' birthday parties. He realised that he had a hidden talent for dramatic props and decorations and they became highly popular for parties and Halloween events such as Ipswich's Biggest Halloween Street Party. His props are movie quality and are in great demand. Look out for Unidentified Flying Objects.
Could this be a UFO?
Families can buy food and drinks downstairs in the club which is licenced. Parents are welcome to have their dinner in the club while the kids dance the night away, knowing they are safe, but are asked to please not leave the premises. Children will be fully supervised and can't leave once they are in the disco (except with their parents). They will have a wristband with the parent's phone number on them in case contact is needed. There are toilets in the function room itself. Dancing is hot work, so water is provided for the kids.
Come to the disco at the Brothers Leagues Club in Wildey Street, Ipswich. There is plenty of parking at the club. The disco is aimed at preschoolers to mid-teens and runs from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Entry is only $5.00 each (adult or child). Tickets are available at the door from 6:00 pm but may I suggest that you purchase yours in advance so that you don't miss out as only 250 tickets will be sold (for safety reasons to fit in upstairs). It would be very disappointing for the little ones not to get in, especially if they are all dressed up. Just ring Rochelle on 0431 315 898 to get your tickets early. It is being run by local business, 'Glitter Pop Up Parties'.
All the raffle ticket money will go to"iCan: Ipswich Community Alliance Network". This charity is doing some great work for needy families in the community. For example, extra help for single mothers and for other families who are doing it tough. The money raised at the Neon Space Party will be spent on a Christmas Party and pressies for kids in foster care. A very worthy cause, I'm sure you will all agree.
You can get more information at Glitter Pop Up Parties and you can even win family tickets to the party online.
