Brand solutions agency Team Epiphany teamed up with Complex Magazine for the fifth installment of their highly anticipated #SummerFridays event series.
Let’s be clear, we here at Stuff Fly People Like look forward to Team Epiphany’s #SummerFridays event series every summer. We know every event is a guaranteed good time and is definitely going to be t he hottest event in town. This year Team Epiphany kicked off #SummerFridays by giving us a taste of parkway on Labor Day in July as theme for the party was Carnival. Guests enjoyed festive cocktails provided by event sponsors Hennessy and Belvedere Vodka or if you prefer a an ice-cold one there was plenty of Heineken’s to go around. Miss Lily’s provided all of the delicious food for the event.
The music fit mood as DJ Wonder and DJ Max Glazier spun a great variety of Reggae, Calypso, Soca and our favorite summer anthems that kept folks toes tapping. The party really picked up when dancers dressed in gorgeous carnival costumes joined the celebration. Guests were also treated to a surprise performance from Screechy Dan. Notable guest included Melanie Fiona, Brave Williams, Demetria Lucas and Renée Neufville from R&B duo, Zhané. Checkout some more photos from the day below.
