For the second year in a row, Forward Flux Productions is bringing the silent disco What the Float from NYC to Seattle. The Float will kick off PRIDE weekend on Friday, June 24th, and is hosted by local drag queen, Sparkle Leigh.
Revelers will be led on a mind-expanding dance adventure through the streets, plazas and parks of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Dancers meet at our starting location where they will be set up with a receiver and a pair of glowing headphones. The What the Float DJ’s will have the music swelling in your ears as we dance through the city, remaining completely inaudible to onlookers. The pied pipers of Float will guide the group through an exploration of Capitol Hill as we “float” through the streets, creating joyful dance mayhem wherever we go.
This experience is limited to 50 guests, and will include stops at some great bars celebrating PRIDE along the way. 21 and up only. Comfortable shoes recommended.
For those unable to join on June 24th, there will be a second Float hosted at Peddler Brewery in Ballard on July 30th.
