Unhosted: Flash Mob Dance at SummerFest

  • Summerfest Grounds

    200 N Harbor Dr, Milwaukee, WI (map)

  • ** There is no host for this get-together. ** This is an unofficial meetup event initiated by a member. Please feel free to use this page to find each other to enjoy your day together.
  • Anyone interested in doing a flash mob dance at Summerfest on Sat June 28th at 3 pm, just outside the Mid entrance?  Let's do the SNL version of "Happy" by Pharrell Williams shown below. It looks pretty easy to learn.  We'll also need someone to bring a big boom box and 2 pre-selected volunteers to do the solo dances (made up to their own style).

    Also, lets make this open to ANYONE, not just members of this meet up group.  Invite your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, people of all ages, races, walks of life... anyone and everyone interested in learning the dance is WELCOME to join.  So, share on your FB page or other meet up groups or wherever.  Let's make it a real MOB of people joined up for no other reason than to experience and give others 4-5 minutes of simply being HAPPY!

    Okay all, without a host, I've decided to remove this meetup. If any group members would like to meet up with each other to hang out at Summerfest, please feel free to suggest a new meetup to do just that.

    All: The meetup member who initiated this event will be unable to attend (see Theresa's comment below.)

    As a result, this is an UNHOSTED event. Because there has been a lot of interest, I will not cancel the event, but please keep in mind that without a host, finding each other (and especially pulling off a flash mob dance) will be much more difficult.

    If someone would like to step up to be the host, please let me know! If anyone does not intend to go, please change your RSVP to no. If the RSVP count decreases below 5, I will cancel the event altogether.

    Is there anyone who can volunteer to bring the music and lead this flash mob? I'm afraid (and happy) to say that I just got a new job and so can not come to Milwaukee to do this flash mob. I'm so disappointed but duty calls. So... in order for this event to come off, we need someone to volunteer to "lead" this by being the one to bring something to play the song on something loud enough for everyone to hear and then just be the person to start dancing FIRST! Any volunteers, please? I hope someone is able to, so we don't have to cancel this as I know many people have said they're looking forward to doing this dance.

    I'm totally down for this! Always wanted to do a flash mob. Will there be organized practice sessions?

      Eek, it's a bit short notice… maybe Sunday evening? I just found out about this project yesterday, so I haven't even had time to practice from the video. But I'd try to come if someone organized a group practice this weekend.

    Hi Everyone who RSVPd! Are you practicing the dance, using the above video as the guide? I've been learning it and am starting to get it!

    For inspiration check out, Flash Mob Indy's May 13, 2014 dance to "Thriller"! http://www.flashmobindy.com/the-addams-family-thriller-at-clowes-hall.html

      Is a smokey hat the one Pharrell always wears and is wearing in the video? Seems to be his signature hat.

      Yep. That's the one. Camden could totes rock it.

    This sounds like a lot of fun. I'm not coordinated either, so I would have to practice. If anyone is up to learn the dance with me, I'm game. I've never been to a meetup, Summerfest or done a flashmob. Always wanted to do this.

      I'm not coordinated either, not at ALL so will have to practice until I get it down. Always wanted to do a flash mob, could not find one so decided to organize one myself. For me, a flash mob is one of those "do before you die" type things! Can't wait! :)
