Let's Get Soakin' Wet

The annual Aqua Party is now the centerpiece of Fire Island's all-new Spray Weekend.
August 12, 2015

The Aqua Party has been raising money for international water projects for the past four years, and this year it’s wetter than ever. With the annual Ascension beach party’s move to Mykonos, Aqua has become August’s biggest event on Fire Island, and this year travel company ShareGurl has built an entire weekend of parties around it. Spray Weekend launches August 15, and  ShareGurl co-founder Raf Kuhn says attendees can expect “good music, high energy silliness, and production elements that engage our guests and encourage them to let loose.”
