Blackout ‘The 13th Hour’ will be a test of stamina

It’s not called the ultimate and most anticipated event of the year for nothing. With a proven track record of providing the best vibes and atmosphere for the official kickoff to the Christmas holiday week, KO Production’s Blackout 2018 ‘The 13th Hour’ will be one for the books.

The dress code is in the name — all black everything, but organizers are warning patrons to dress comfortably. This year’s event will be a true test of stamina of one’s ability to party from sunset to sunrise, as it will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, December 21 at Fort Charlotte, and end at 7 a.m. the next day.

To set the party mood, Blackout will feature some of the hottest DJs from Nassau, Freeport, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.

But there’s also the chance to win big, and by big we’re talking about a 2013 Black Ford Mustang, packing all the power and torque needed to take you home after 12 straight hours of Blackout partying.

To enter, take your ticket and receipt from any Blackout partner to Bahamian Brewery on Nassau Street. Fill out the raffle form and deposit it in the raffle box.

You can enter to win the weekly scavenger hunt multiple times to increase your chances. However, each time you drop off your receipt, you will need to show proof that you have a Blackout ticket.

The winner will be announced at 7:01 a.m., just as the party is scheduled to shut down.

For 14 years, Blackout has been that party where friends and family, old and young reunite to really get down and celebrate the Christmas holiday season. From days at the Riu hotel to the National Stadium, and then Fort Charlotte, not even Mother Nature has been able to stop the force known as Blackout.

BTC and Sands Beer are the title sponsors.

Jayde Knowles is the public relations and media correspondent for Blackout.

“Blackout has been around for so long, you have very loyal patrons who’ve been with us since the very first one that happened at the Riu,” she said.

“So you have people who know the event. But you also have a new generation that’s just beginning to experience Blackout. With us, there’s no discrimination. It’s a party for all.”

Can you survive The 13th Hour? December 21 will be the ultimate test at the ultimate party experience of the year.

Ticket are available at Airbrush Junkies, The People’s Pharmacy, 24/7 Denim in Marathon Mall, Stiletto Shoe Loft and all Sun Cash Locations.
