Dear Party People,
The Poolparty only seems like a week ago and already we bring you a brand new party to look forward to.
We travel to a different place and time across the Atlantic to the 70’s of California. When lots of leather was mainstream and your hair was full of grease, you could drive into a cinema and smoking was still healthy. To tell how you feel just randomly start singing and everyone will know the moves, just throw your jacket in the corner and start dancing. Yes.... you guessed it: We are talking about Grease!
With that theme in mind Labyrint comes with its Laby-only party: LABY LIGHTNING!
Unfortunately this party will not end up in theatres but there are lots of opportunities to get a nice picture. So get your combs and hairspray and dive in the closet of your parents to get the best outfit, because in less than a month we go wild!!
