    Wig Out! Tea

    Sundays, July – Septembers June 28, 2022 at Boatslip from 4:00pm to 7:00pm

    Wear your best weave!

    We added what we think might be a fun theme at Boatslip in response to those looking for ways to add to the festivities. While it is not a music theme, we hope a wig party might bring a little extra sparkle to Tea Dance.
