Come get spooky on the heated, outdoors Lovejoy Rooftop at our 11th Annual Jai Ho! BOLLYWOOD THRILLER Halloween Costume Day Party in PDX!
THE BOLLYWOOD THRILLER
What started in 2011 as a DJ Prashant choreography to a mashup of a Bollywood wedding song with Michael Jackson's Thriller has transformed into a Halloween time sub-culture in the Pacific NW over the years. Come get Spooky on the dance floor as we celebrate North America's most flamboyant festival, with a Bollywood twist!
For the first time we are hosting an ALL AGES version of this festive costume party so everyone can join the fun. Bring in the little ghouls & tiny zombies. FREE for kids below 9. 👻
Our party will be held outdoors in the tented, heated Lovejoy Rooftop, and of course all COVID-19 protocols will be followed.

General Guidelines @ Every JAI HO!
Creating a safe & celebratory space is my number one priority at every event I host.
And I would love for you to be an accomplice of mine by greeting & treating everyone like you would like to be treated. With equality, mutual respect, and a big smile.
I know this does not apply to you because you are awesome but for the other people who it may be relevant to, I have zero tolerance for bigotry, racist remarks and general reckless behavior including but not limited to fighting, inappropriate touch, etc.
Anyone found engaging in such behavior will be thrown out at once & may never be able to attend my dance parties again.
A brief history of JAI HO! in Portland:
I moved to the US from India in 2003 for graduate school at Cornell University, and started DJing, teaching dance & hosting events in Portland after quitting a full-time job at Intel back in 2009.
Since then, I have traveled regularly across the west coast, Denver, and New Orleans to produce & spin at dance parties that create and fostering communities centered around celebrating world music & dance, with a focus on South Asian cultural exchange.
We at Bollywood Dreams seek to practice deep regard and reverence for the Indigenous People on whose lands we have the opportunity to live, work and play. Jai Ho! Dance Party in Seattle takes place at unceded ancestral lands of the Duwamish Tribe.
Hosting A Private Event?
When not hosting my own dance nights, I love DJ'ing for weddings, private and corporate events. Contact me through my website http://dreamsperfected.com if you want to work with me to throw a memorable shindig!
