Two years ago Balashi Brewery partnered with Stichting Arubaanse Carnaval, SAC, to host the first of what is now considered one of the most fun carnival parties of the season, the Chill Flip Flop beach party. They introduced their new Balashi Chill, which was an instant success, and turned hotel row into beach for the event.
This year, the 3rd annual Chill Flip Flop Party will capture all the fun of Carnaval on Sunday, January 20, from 4:00 PM until midnight, while being an actual beach party at the Surfside Marina in Oranjestad. Balashi is also taking this opportunity to introduce their new, 8 oz “pony cans,” of Chill, which fit nicely in the hand and can easily be finished while the beer is still icy cold.
The event will host a parade of major local musical talent and international singing sensation Cris Cab as guest featured performer. DJ Big Rig, Upgrade Music, DatapaniK and DJ Nutzbeatz will keep the vibe flowing all day, until the grand finale, when Cris Cab will demonstrate why he is the hottest young Cuban performer in Miami.
Partygoers will receive great Chill logo gifts along with their purchase of cases of the new pony cans of beer. Sunglasses, hats, tee shirts, tank tops, booty shorts and can holders will be distributed. During the first half hour of the event, from 4:00 to 4:30 PM only, receive a gift of a beautiful, full size, unfolding thermal cooler on wheels with a pull handle, making it easy to take your beer with you wherever you go.
This is a beach party above all, and to emphasis this, a featured event will be a fashion show by bikini specialists, Amar Swimwear of Aruba, with island models competing to be their Amar Bikini Model of 2013.
The best news yet is entrance to the event is entirely FREE; there is no fee to join in a great afternoon of carnival fun, musical entertainment and bodacious bodies on the beach, courtesy of Aruba’s National Brewery, Balashi. Everyone is invited to Surfside to enjoy the ambiance and just Chill!
