We don't call ourselves the Best BBW Summer Bash for nothin'! Read on to find out how we kick off Summer in Canada, Best BBW style!
Check In and Chill Out
Rest your weary, traveling toes and join us in the Canadian Chill Out Lounge. Hotel room not ready yet? Need to coordinate a shopping run? This is your first opportunity to mix and mingle. It's never too early to get the fun started!
What better way to kick off our Best BBW Summer Bash than with a Pool Party from 10:00 PM until 4:00 AM on Thursday night! Relax your traveling toes by dipping them into our private salt water pool and float your cares away! Not a beach babe? No worries, the party will spill over into our Canadian Chill-Out Lounge which will be sizzlin' hot. No glass of any kind in the pool area, not even in your cooler, bring plastic cups or tumblers.
Meet and Greet
One of the BEST events of the bash! So who are all these wonderful Best Bashers anyway? Set up similar to speed dating, the Meet and Greet gives you a chance to chat one-on-one with your fellow bashers. Due to the overwhelming popularity of this event, it will be held in the Ballroom to make sure we have room for everyone. This is an event you don't want to miss!
Canadian Chill-Out Lounge
This is your unofficial meeting spot! Located on the Pool level of the Tower, this room will be open from 11am to 4am. If you're not much of a swimmer or have had enough of the pool, come hang out in the Chill-Out Lounge where you'll find people to talk with, play cards or boardgames, colour, and share some snacks. This is a great place to coordinate those tourist excursions and and leave a note to tell people where you'll be. If you're looking for a midnight snack, this is also PB&J central. This is YOUR bash hangout.
Roaming Room Parties
Friday night is our Lingerie Roaming Room Party! Best Bashers on the top two floors of the Tower will decorate the front half of their suite in the theme of their choice and have beverages, snacks or treats to share. Please know that decorating or providing treats is not a requirement, but there will be a prize for the room that is awared the BEST Roaming Room - like a really good prize, the BEST prize! Each suite on the party floors must be open during the 90 minutes in which that floor is hosting - the 5th floor will host from 10:00-11:30pm, the 6th floor will host from 11:30pm to 1am. The dress code for this event is lingerie, comfy casual or dress to match your room theme. Everyone with a bash bracelet is able to participate in this event even if you have a suite or room not on a party floor.
Party in the Best Suite
After the roaming room party, join your Best Bash hosts, Rita and Phil Best in the BEST Suite. Roaming Room hosts, feel free to bring up any leftover goodies you have from the Roaming Room party and we'll keep things hopping until 4am.
Bash Bag Stuffing
If you've attended a Best BBW Bash before, you know how much awesome stuff was crammed into those Bash Bags. This year, we're looking for a few volunteers to help load up all these goodies into the bags. Meet downstairs in the Canadian Chill Out Lounge on the Tower Pool level to lend a hand and get a sneak peak before official registration.
Our Very Own Private Salt Water Pool
We have secured our private tower salt water pool for bash guests only. The pool will be open all weekend from 11am to 4am. Bash bracelet is required for entry. An outdoor pool (open to all hotel guests, not just Bashers) is also available during the day for those who want to catch some rays. Don't forget the sunscreen for the outside pool! Remember, NO GLASS of any kind at the pool!
Peanut Butter Jelly Time!
Another Best BBW Bash event fave! All that dancin' and swimmin' probably worked up an appetite! Nothing will hit the spot like a good ol' PB&J. Stop by the Canadian Chill-Out lounge to unwind before bed.
Share Your Truth with Karen Eh
While our bash is packed full of fun, 'Share Your Truth' is the Best BBW Summer Bash event that you'll take home with you! This closed-door, BBWs-only bonding experience allows us to share our stories of self-love, acceptance and navigating life as a plus-sized woman. You provide the stories, we provide the tissues.
Plus Sized Clothing Swap
We all know that you have some things in your closet that you bought and haven't worn because they weren't quite right. Bring them to swap or sell, or show up and see what perfect outfit might be there for you! Everyone is responsible for setting up, taking down, selling or swapping their own items. Anything unwanted at the end of the swap will be collected and donated to charity at your request.
Beach Party Club Night
Party it up in your finest clubwear or BBW beach babe attire as our DJ Delite spins the tunes to keep us on the dance floor all night long. This is also when we'll be revealing the winners of the BEST Roaming Room and crowning our Bash King and Queen so make sure you get your votes in!
Late Night Private Pool Party
After you've danced your feet off, slip on your suit and take a dip in our Private Tower Salt Water Pool until 4:00 AM Saturday night. Continue dancing in the pool, with our awesome DJ playing tunes to keep the party going! Or if you don't feel like getting wet, hang out in our Canadian Chill Out Lounge down the hall.
Wake Up and Make Up with Novella Fry
On Friday at noon, bring your makeup and a fresh face to the Canadian Chill Out Lounge where Novella will share her best makeup and beauty secrets.
We have strived to create a bash with a lot of great events planned, but also enough free time to enjoy the sites of Niagara Falls. We encourage you to revist this page or join the conversation on Facebook where unofficial bash events like tourist excursions, dinners and more are being planned.
Please note that these events are subject to change.
