FISH BAY, Tortola, VI – TMT Promotions will host the Virgin Islands first ever Wet & Wild foam party at the Paragon Events Centre in Fish Bay tonight Saturday May 10, 2014, to go all night and to cater for those who will be prepared for the foam and also those who prefer the dry.

“We were looking to do something new. We were bouncing around a few ideas and we decided on the foam party so we had to source a foam machine,” said Mr Nathan R. Wong in an interview with this news site.

“There was none in St Thomas that we could find, none in Puerto Rice that we could find,” he said. He added that they had to purchase one from the United States and ship it down and it arrived about three weeks ago.

He said that since then they have been testing the machine to ensure it is working how it should for the party. Mr Wong said too that the machine can be used for different type of events like children’s parties.

“We set it up and we place the barricade up [to contain the water] in one area,” he said. He added that provision have been made to have rubberized mats on the floor to prevent persons from slipping and falling in the sudsy conditions.

Wong said that the foam area will be 24 feet by 24 feet with almost 600 square feet of space for the patrons. They will be in four feet of foam when the party starts. He said too that there will be an area of about 700 to 800 square feet reserved for persons who do not wish to get into the water and who wish to remain dry.

In addition, he said all of the speakers and wiring will be off the floor to avoid contact with the water.

He said that given the lessons learnt along the way in preparing for this foam party, the next one should be easier to execute.

“The next foam party that we have, we have learnt a lot obviously. We’ve sunk in a lot of money buying the foam machine and building the foam pit. So the next one will be a lot easier,” said Mr Wong. “We’re hoping it is a big success,” he said.

The main sponsors are Digicel, Coors Light and Caribbean Cellars. Additional sponsors are Hazem's Beauty Supply and Sunshine GM Clothing Store.

The entertainers for the event will be DJ Avalanche from St Thomas and DJ Dre.

The price of admission will be $15 with swimwear and $20 without. Admission will be to persons 21 years and over only.

In addition to Mr Wong, the other organisers of the event are Latoya Cotton, Aymen Husein and Cannon Fahie.
