Presenting Sponsor: Professional Protector Plan

Location: Palladium Ballroom
(Brighton Tower)

It may be 6:30pm when the doors open but when you step into Brighton Tower, it's 5 O'Clock inside the Palladium Ballroom. This family friendly event includes dinner, music, dancing, Margarita station , Robo Surfer Ride, Mechanical Shark,  games and more. Children and adults can enjoy the rides! Attendees will arrive through the tiki hut entrance into a festive Jimmy Buffett inspired ballroom.  Hopefully everyone will have on their flipflops as they meander into the room where the deejay will be covering all of the Jimmy Buffet hits from Margaritaville to - of course - Cheeseburger in Paradise.  We will have shark fin hats, leis, and other giveaways. 

This Parrothead Party will have outdoor inspired games such as Flamingo Ring Toss, Corn Hole, Tiki Toss, Giant Jenga and Limbo. Everyone will want to remember this island adventure, so a photo booth with fun props will be available. 

​Dinner includes a "Cheeseburger in Paradise" slider bar (veggie option available), grilled chicken, crabcakes, chips, tator tots, corn on the cob, fruit salad, cookies, iced tea, lemonade and beer. A cash bar will also be available.
