Maverick's After Dark: MEGA Foam Party - Moved Indoors for Weather



Fifth Annual Foam Party goes Mega with new After Party

MANKATO, Minn. –The Student Events Team will be hosting the 5th Annual Foam Party at the CSU Loading Dock. The Foam Party will be held August 26, 2017 and will start at 8 p.m. and go until 11 p.m. A new after party with activities for those not wanting to venture into the foam will begin at 9 p.m. and end at 11:59 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 foam party will feature foam machines suspended above the crowd Also, students will receive a plastic bag to protect their phone and other valuables.

"We are really excited to add an After Party for those who don’t want to go into the foam or want something more than just the party,” says Alex Arndt, Student Events Team Events Committee’s Mavericks After Dark Chair. “It is also a great way to meet new people and feel at home on campus!”

This event features two foam machines that produce enough foam to fill a 100 square foot area in 3 minutes. 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. The Foam Party will feature an after party with inflatables, free food, a air cash machine with prizes, photo booth from Campus Crusade, and a giant screen video game tournament.

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 four years and has only been improved on by adding more fun each year.
