It’s time to dig out your light up sunglasses, glow stick bracelets, and get ready to shine at Lake Sumter Landing for our 3rdElectric Light Party with Blonde Ambition!
What started as a glow party back in 2021 has evolved into an all-out light fest with light up handouts included. Mary Carlson, booking coordinator at The Villages Entertainment has been prepping for months for this party in the Entertainment garages. She shared, “[We] started small but now it’s gone into this larger thing. It will be every year in November and we’re already booked for next year!”
“We love to have everyone dressed in lights but we will also be throwing out light up batons and glow rings.”
This year we’ll be handing out over 1000 light-up gel rings and glow batons, along with 100 plus light-up beach balls for the crowd to volley in the air. That doesn’t include what Blonde Ambition will bringing to the stage. “Blonde Ambition Band is incredibly supportive of each other on and off the stage. However, we all love a little friendly competition! We are bringing hundreds of glow sticks and other glowing props with us and we like to see who can hand out the most to the audience! This year, the competition will be intense! “
With light-ups galore being prepared in the past months, there is still more to be done! Leading up to the party, the Entertainment squad will be preparing our featured drink, The Electric Elixir, a blue jello shot. In addition to this special beverage, we’ll also feature Blonde Ambition’s feature drink, The Blonde Bombshell to keep the party going. Be sure to say hi to your favorite bar staff members as we will have every bar hut open with an additional beer and wine tent for easy access.
DAY OF SET UP
The day of the party, you may see team members out at the square decorating. Depending on the extent of decorations for each Light Party, this process can start as early as 7am and last until 4pm. The Entertainment office also gets an interior makeover the day of the party, with staff members putting chairs on their desks at the end of the work day for stilt walkers to sit on while on break, and moving cubicles to create space for the hula-hooper to stretch out before heading out to perform.
Our crowd control members also play a hand in helping set-up and additionally bring calm to the chaos for the night. Decked out in neon vests, they ensure safety for our events and we couldn’t enjoy the party without their constant support and you may see them help usher in our performers throughout the nights.
With this event constantly growing, we would like to add a big shoutout to our sponsors Mid Florida Agencies and The Skylight Contractor for supporting this event and give a big welcome to our first ever vendors for this event Oh My Dogs, BBQ Brazil Express, and the Kettle Corn Cabin.
“The Electric Light Party is unlike any performance we get to do on a regular basis! Blonde Ambition Band literally has an opportunity to light up the night! We love seeing our audience’s creativity in the awesome costumes they put together and providing the entertainment to have the time of their lives! Between the kickin’ music, the fun atmosphere, and most importantly, the incredible energy and excitement from the audience, the Electric Light Party is an unforgettable experience!” – Blonde Ambition
