Thursday Night Poolside Social & Welcome Party

A Day at the Beach ~ Swimwear through the Ages

The opening social event of the weekend is our Thursday Night Welcome Party, hosted outside by the pool patio, between 8-10pm. It’s generally HOT! HOT! HOT! in Southern California in July, so this year’s theme is designed to help you keep your cool.

The theme is Beach Days, where we are celebrating everything beachy. People have always thronged to beaches for fun, health, and relaxation. Picture yourself in the second decade of the 20th century at the newly opened Venice Beach Boardwalk as you stride along being seen in the newest fashions and joining in a carnival game or two. Or perhaps, you might like to admire or join the body builders working on their form at Muscle Beach.

Please join us for a casual evening of meeting up with old friends, making new ones and relaxing a bit after your travel. Our hosts can direct you to a variety of activities, including a newbie meetup, photo opportunities, games, and of course the bar where you can purchase delicious fruity drinks and appetizers.

Come show off your vintage or reproduction swimsuits, bathing wear or beach pajamas. Modern attire is also perfectly acceptable – costumes are always optional at Costume College, but please be aware that the pool patio is a public space and attire should always be kept PG!

Hope to see you there!

Jane Cadieux, Hostess
