It’s Canada Day on Friday and American Independence Day on Monday, so basically this weekend is awash in the colors of red, white and blue. Epic Day Entertainment is therefore bringing back its annual boat party on Saturday, otherwise known as the “Red, White and Glow” event, straddling the two celebratory holidays that bookend the weekend.

Although the party vessel leaves the dock beside the Lobster Pot at 8 p.m., guests are encouraged to be in situ by 7:15 p.m. at the latest so they literally do not miss the boat. Once onboard, the fun really begins.

Do you remember DJ XS? Well, this popular music spinner has come back to the island, all the way from Canada, to entertain his many fans. He will be joined by DJ Lizzie Curious and other local maestros as the engines kick in and the party heads to the open water.

Bring your own glow accessories along, but know that there will be lots of giveaways on the night to augment your collection. Even the tickets are glow dog tags!

“The boat party is always really popular,” said Sian Weinzweig of Epic Day Entertainment. “No one should miss it!”

You can buy tickets from the Epic Day office at the Strand; Billy Bones; or use the Connected Castaway App. Tickets are $35 each and usually sell out before the boat leaves the dock, so get yours now.
