Night-Time-Glow-Stic­k-Dance Walk!

Um, did someone say Glow Stick Dance Party?! Cuz I really think they did!

Calling all Dance Walkers! we’re about to rock the night!

Join us for a night-time Dance Walk! and don’t forget to bring your glow sticks. Let’s light up the night and show everyone around where the party’s at. Does this sound fun or what?

Please wear all black and decorate yourself with glow sticks from your local party city to shine bright like a diamond as night falls on Town Lake. The dress code is rather strict on this one so please wear at least a black top and you must be carrying or wearing something that glows, flashes, blinks, lights-up. Ex: Light-up items such as; jewelry, hats, small flashlights work as well. We are not crossing any streets during the walk but you do need to get to and from your car safely!

Oh yeah and I desperately need song suggestions! My brain can only do so much, haha. Send me suggestions via email or on the Discussions forum of the same name.

We will meet in the Auditorium Shores main parking lot at the corner of 1st and Riverside. We will meet at the rock-wall at the very end of the main parking lot and to the left. It’s under a big shady tree.

Bring water, wear breathable, comfortable (black) clothing and appropriate footwear, and bring lots of water. There are quite a few water fountains along the way but they aren’t particularly tasty.

Parking is minimal in their main parking lot so feel free to use the free parking garage on Haywood Ave. directly behind Threadgills.

We are uber excited about this Dance Walk! and can’t wait to see all of you there!

      Yes! We will head west and go over the pedestrian bridge, down the ramp to Cesar Chavez for a dance break, then back the way we came! We'll be somewhere on the pedestrian bridge around then I'd say :)

    just found a glow light suggestion on one of my Halloween sites: break a glow stick into a bubble solution. Bubbles will glow. sounds like cool idea for those of you who wont mind carrying it or for any nite time fun.

    • geneve

      Dollar Tree sells a pkg of 3 small (4oz) bottles for $1-1 or 2 can easily fit in a fannypack if you are so inclined.

      July 24, 2013

    • Sarah Kinney W.

      That is a GREAT idea! They have bubble guns on amazon for less than $3! I am ordering some glow stuff tomorrow, I'll see if I've gone too far over my budget yet!
