Round Trip (Friday - Sunday)
As we have done the last two years, plans are to once again depart from Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, MD on Friday morning around 9:00 am (to ensure arrival at the event in time for those riding the bus to participate in Friday afternoon activities, including the Royston Intensive).
The return trip will departing the event on Sunday afternoon shortly after all competitions, performances and award ceremonies have been completed, with a planned arrival at the origination point prior to midnight.
Finals details will be posted both here and on the Facebook Event page closer to the event weekend.
If applicable, and based on interest and demand, we have the flexibility to add a quick stop in the Richmond area (likely somewhere with easy “on/off” access to I-95) to accommodate folks in the area who may want to join in on the fun!
What to Expect During the Trip
For those who have ridden the DC- Party bus in prior years, you know what to expect!!! (And, just a reminder, since alcohol consumption is allowed, you must be 21 or older to ride the bus).
For those looking to take advantage of this fun-filled opportunity, while we are still working out final details, we are excited to announce that once again Richard & Susan DeFelice have offered to coordinate and act as our Host & Hostess on the bus!
Along with food, drinks, games, and other entertainment, this year we are pleased to announce that staff members Kay Newhouse, Greg Scott, Lemery Rollins, Markus Smith and Tren Veal have indicated that they will be riding the bus to and from the event!
Stay tuned – we have some ideas for making the DC-Party Bus better than ever, and will post details as we confirm things!
