‘Amaz­ing cos­tumes’ bound for re­sort’s Gay Ski Week

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Queen­stown’s Gay Ski Week or­gan­is­ers are promis­ing ‘‘par­ties to end all par­ties’’ at the an­nual win­ter pride event.

Sally White­woods said some of the re­gion’s very best food and wine as well as leg­endary par­ties and fun times would be key to the event be­tween Au­gust 29 and Septem­ber 5.

A fab­u­lous and ex­clu­sive culi­nary tastefest is on the menu dur­ing the week for the first time, cour­tesy of The Rees ho­tel’s True South Dining Ex­pe­ri­ence.

Later in the week there would be a ‘Life is a Beach’ party at Brazz and on the fi­nal night Bro­ken Shed presents the ‘Once Upon A time Fi­nal Dance Party’ at Queen­stown’s Me­mo­rial Cen­tre.

Af­ter a huge re­sponse last year, DJ Kate Mon­roe from Syd­ney would be back again with Adam Love, rul­ing the roost over all those fantab­u­lous Cinders or Prince Charm­ings.

‘‘They’ll be the par­ties to end all par­ties and we can’t wait to see the amaz­ing cos­tumes at ‘Once Upon A Time’ af­ter the bar was set pretty high last year,’’ White­woods said.

Other events in­clude an open­ing party, LYC Wet & Wild Foam party, Durex ‘Queer Quiz’ and the in­au­gu­ral ‘High­lands Hook Up’ adventure day at the High­lands Mo­tor­sport Park.

The South­ern Hemi­sphere’s largest Win­ter Pride event sees hun­dreds of peo­ple con­verge on Queen­stown for a week-long cel­e­bra­tion of ski­ing, so­cial­is­ing, adventure and daz­zling en­ter­tain­ment and frol­ics.
