Squirt party draws some 2,500 attendees
19 Apr, 2006
Fridae’s annual summer party, Squirt will be back in Bangkok this Apr 14 to 16, for the second consecutive year after a sold out event last year.
Held over Bangkok’s wettest, hottest and most celebrated festival, Songkran which is also known as the Water festival, the aptly named Squirt and Slurp parties drew over 1,500 and some 2,500 attendees respectively.
Organisers Fridae.com took over the Royal Sheraton Orchid’s exclusive Embassy Garden on April 14 for a poolside party with Amsterdam-based DJ Tommy Marcus at the decks. By sunset, the poolside was filled with 1,500 Speedo, boardshorts or similarly clad attendees squirting their “Super Soakers,” swimming, dancing or laying by the poolside enjoying the sights. The night climaxed with a fireworks display against the magnificent Bangkok skyline and riverside backdrop, and synchronised to Bob Sinclair’s “World, Hold On” as the crowd screamed and cheered.
