A night of glitz and glamour
TIME TO DAZZLE AT THE GLAMOUR PARTY FESTIVAL FUN
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:
