It's the 2nd annual Big Girl YYC Pool Party! Last year was an absolute blast and I just know this one will be an event to remember!
We are welcoming Jen & Gabe of New Zumba back from the windy city of Lethbridge to do a half hour Aqua Zumba class and then they will lead us in some super fun water games!
This pool is in a beautiful shape that allows for a wading pool area, a mid level area where we will be taking part in zumba and water games and then a deep end for good old fashioned pool floating — the pineapples and flamingos are making a comeback ya'll!!!
We are going to have Music (TBA), a faux-mosa bar, prizes (including a swimsuit from Gabi Fresh!) and most importantly a place for you to come and be yourself in the pineapple swimsuit that you can't wait to wear!
BIQ (Big Important Questions)
Are all women welcome?
YES! One hundred times yes. Whether you are big in size, big in heart or big in personality! The word BIG transcends judgement and welcomes you in with support and a place to feel safe. We are big in heart, not big on judgement. This is a welcoming space for identifying women of all ages, races, ethnicities, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and size. Let this be a place to love big and to support each other as we move big.
Can I bring my children and partner with me?
This is a really difficult question and one I have reached out to others for support in answering. When the orignal plans for this party happened — my initial thought was to open it up to everyone. After some really good conversations with mamas in this group I have decided that this pool party is a time for YOU, so bring your best friend, or come alone and get ready to make new friends! Identifying girls (over the age of 12) are welcome to come if their mom will be in attendance with them! For the mamas who are hoping for a younger child friendly event — don't worry, there will be on planned in the coming months!
Can I bring alcohol, drugs or ciggarettes?
100% NO. There are very strict rules when it comes to renting a public pool and as this is not licensed, if you choose to bring any of the above — this could result in you being asked to leave. That is the absolute LAST thing I would want to do as it would really crush the positive pool party vibe. So, PLEASE, make plans to have an alcoholic summer bevvy after the pool party is over when you are riding high on BGYYC life! There will be a faux-mosa bar to keep you hydrated throughout the morning!
How do I get in on the pool party fun?
Tickets are $30.00/each ($2.00 from each ticket sold will be donated to the Women In Need Society
(WINS). You can purchase tickets through eventbrite, please note tickets are non-refundable but they can be transferred to another person! Pool party will happen come rain or come shine! Come ready to support one another in the bodies we are in TODAY!
