A beach party in October? Why not? It does sort of still feel like summer some days and some say that summer never really ends in Cyprus. An upcoming beach party in Paphos makes use of the good weather and warm October days to officially bid farewell to the summer months. Whenever that may happen!
The Island Angels, an all-female motorcycle club, is organising the event on October 23 and it will be an afternoon full of fun, crafts, music and more. Starting at 4pm at Mandria Beach Bar, the beach party will feature music, an outdoor movie, a market place and free camping.
Taking care of the music for the afternoon and the evening is Stephanos Georgiadis a.k.a. Mr Loopman and his Loop Station Project. “Stephanos is a session musician, a guitar tutor and a composer but he is truly an artist when using his loop station! Something not to be missed!” say the organisers. But he won’t be the only musical act of the event.
Local band Side Effects will kick things up a notch performing an eclectic mix of rockabilly and blues-rock. Band members Stefanos Ioannides, Stelios Frangos, Ian Richard Cole and Fidias Ferekides will play one of their signature sets, born out of a desire to spread their infectious love of rock’n’roll with roots, blues and funk-rock influences.
Apart from music, there will also be a marketplace with stalls selling luxury candles, sweets, high end used clothes, exotic tea blends, cakes, moto accessories, used motorcycle kits, RBL poppies, jewellery and lots more. Free camping for all will be available, just remember to bring your tent and in the morning, the organisers will treat you to a free sausage bap and coffee or tea. “Let’s say a proper goodbye to the summer together,” say the organisers.
