Maverick's After Dark: Foam Party

ANKATO, Minn. –The Student Events Team will be hosting the 4th Annual Foam Party at the CSU Loading Dock. The Foam Party will be held August 27, 2016 and will start at 8 p.m. and go until 11 p.m.

Students must wear shirts, shoes/sandals, and shorts (or pants. It is suggested that students wear swimming suits under their clothing because they will get wet. This is free for students. The first 250 students to arrive will receive a free color changing cup, curtesy of Mavericks After Dark. Also, students will receive a plastic bag to protect their phone and other valuables.

"The foam adds to a fun and exciting atmosphere, and gives students an opportunity to destress after the first week of classes,” says Kayla Stone, Student Events Team Events Committee’s Mavericks After Dark Chair. “It is also a great way to meet new people!”

This event features two foam machines that produce enough foam to fill a 100 square foot area in 3 minutes. There will also be a new foam solution that produces more foam in less time and stays longer. The DJ for this event is former MSU student and CLASA member, Sergio who has performed for MSU’s Dance Marathon in previous years. The lights are being brought down directly from a club in the Twin Cities.

Throughout the night there will be UV reactive paint sprayed over the crowd. Not only will students leave covered in foam, but will also look like a rainbow.

This has been a traditional event for the Student Events Team the past three years and has only been improved on by adding more fun each year.

The Student Events Team’s corporate sponsor this year is Live Active Apartments.[a1]
