A night of fab­u­lous fun awaits those keen to sparkle and shine at this year’s Glam­our Party at Shep­par­ton’s Aussie Ho­tel.

Held as part of the OUTintheOPEN Fes­ti­val, Glam­our Party has be­come a pop­u­lar at­trac­tion and this year prom­ises to be big­ger, bet­ter and gayer than ever as it takes over the up­stairs main room of the pub.

Now in its fourth year, Glam­our Party is set to dish up a night to re­mem­ber as Mel­bourne drag queen leg­ends Rhubarb Rouge, Rac­quel Wil­liams and Krys­tal Ring ar­rive to wow crowds with fab­u­lous num­bers and gor­geous cos­tumes full of sparkle.

Amy New­ton Dance Stu­dios will per­form sexy, tan­ta­lis­ing bur­lesque dance rou­tines and DJ Moy­lan will spin tunes all night long for every­one to set them­selves free on the dance f loor.

Pun­ters can also an­tic­i­pate a few sur­prises through the night, in­clud­ing pole dancers and maybe even a strip­per.

Glam­our Party pro­ducer Ricky Beirao — known by his alter ego Rhubarb Rouge — will be host­ing the night and said it was great to be back again for the fourth year.

‘‘It’s been amaz­ing how many peo­ple have been ask­ing me if I was go­ing to do the party again,’’ he said.

‘‘It is be­com­ing a must in the Shep­par­ton so­cial cal­en­dar — a night of fun, fri­vol­ity and de­bauch­ery.’’ Ready for glam­our:
