On Halloween Eve, Paint Rave makes its attendees prematurely see red with a heavy coating of pigment. As Detroit DJs provide a danceable backbeat, the crowd gets slippery with a coating of 50,000 gallons of soapy foam. 250 gallons of red paint enter the mix from overhead sprinklers, dousing dancers and adding the last touch to Carrie costumes. CO2 cannons provide the last coating with a dusting of confetti. Costumes are encouraged, though it may take the better part of a year to comb the confetti from a gorilla suit's fur.
Based out of Detroit, the Foamshow tour has packed more than 400 venues across the country with dance-happy patrons and thousands of gallons of hypoallergenic, water-based foam. International DJs, go-go dancers, fire spinners, aerialists, and cirque-style performers entertain 18- or 21-and-older patrons as confetti and neon lights fill the air. Because attendees will get wet, Foamshow recommends they dress in swimwear, T-shirts, jeans, or scuba gear.
