Saturday 23rd July HAPPY BIRTHDAY GARDALAND!
The time has come, everything is ready for Saturday 23rd July, time to blow 41 candles and say… happy birthday Gardaland! The years going by don’t seem to worry Italy’s Number 1 Amusement Park, capable of offering something new every year and of offering its Guests brand new emotions each time. A day-long party featuring music, shows, parades and plenty of fun – from 10 PM to 3 AM – to enjoy all of Gardaland’s attractions by night. In other words, a unique and extraordinary occasion to wish the happiest of birthdays to the famous Garda Park.
Piazza Valle dei Re (Valley of Kings Square) will turn into an out and out outdoor disco under the stars
thanks to the music offers by the deejays of the Papeete Beach of Milano Marittima which will take turns at the console from 6.30 PM onwards. A great stage – transformed into an imposing pagoda in reference to the new area of the Park, Kung Fu Panda Academy – that will be made with thousands of balloons and it will welcome the fantasy and the musical feats of the various DJs who, with their music selections, will make every Guest dance all night long. From 11.30 PM onwards we will see onstage Chicco MC Dal, Marco Benini and Double Deejay who, for one night only, have decided to abandon the most popular dancefloor in Italy to entertain the faithful Guests of Gardaland to the tune of the coolest tunes of the summer.
Yet it won’t only be the music taking centre stage! The night will also be characterised by oriental style shows and parades and by shows present all over the Park. Ballet dancers dressed as geishas and a giant dragon will stroll along surrounded by a Rising Sun atmosphere, offering all the charm and energy of a fascinating and distant world. Lively, dynamic Brazilian dancers will involve Guests in typical summer dances, from samba to salsa. Everybody will be ready to go wild, to the sound of Latin American music, for a truly extraordinary night! The Country Band will offer itinerant musicians and, roaming among the tables of the Saloon, it will entertain Guests, at lunch and dinner, with live country music. A real Mexican band will be on hand for all the Guests of the Hacienda Miguel in a truly fascinating, mysterious and at times overwhelming atmosphere! In the west zone the Line Dance will perform group dances: all Guests will be able to take part and, thanks to the simplicity of the movements and of the steps to be carried out, even the younger ones will be part of the fun. The Hawaii area will be offering the Flamenco Show: a Spanish dance group will recreate the captivating gipsy atmosphere with music, dances and plenty of fun to the tune of marvellous Spanish-style melodies. And furthermore… the Brazilian Live Band, a group of itinerant Brazilian drummers will roam the streets of the Park setting the pace of this great celebration. And what about the Corsair ship? The Medieval Band called Rota Temporis will present to the public a true, live medieval band concert, “pirate” style, with drums and bagpipes. There will also be the Showzer DJ Set Oriental Style with live singers who, on a main stage shaped like an oriental pagoda in the Valley of Kings square, will deliver major dance hits performing in oriental costumes. At 6 PM it will be time for the Happy Birthday Parade: starting from the Merlin Stube in Camelot square, the happy brigade will involve everybody in a walk along the streets of the Park, in the heart of the party!
Those wishing to go wild and show off their dancing skills will be able to try out, in the Mammut area, the game that has truly entertained everyone: Just Dance! Adults and children will be able to perform, accompanied by music, following the moves indicated by a coach through a big screen, kick-starting a real group dance where, there will definitely be plenty of fun surprises!
Furthermore, those wishing to leave a sign of their presence will be able to sign their names and leave a note on a giant 15-metre panel, because a birthday must always be remembered!
And those dining in one of the main dining spots of the Park will receive as a gift, limited to availability, bright colourful bracelets to set alight the most entertaining night of the summer.
And at midnight everyone will be staring at the sky, nose in the air… as the Park and Garda’s panoramic horizon will dress up in colours and lights: wonderful fireworks will depart from the Valley of Kings Square, a unique occasion to wish together, in great party style, a Happy Birthday to Gardaland!
