Out in the Park sponsor Ketel One has selected four area LGBT establishments for Four Fridays of Fun in St. Louis.


The DJ's of Scarlet Bar, named “best gay bar” by Chicago Magazine, will spin these four Out in the Park pre-parties:


August 29th - Just John

September 5th - Siam

September 12th - Hamburger Marys

September 19th - Rehab


Scarlet is known for their DJ's and creating a fun, crazy, rowdy party atmosphere.There really isn't any other bar that is taking over stages in the Midwest like6Flags Scarlet has. They have played at Out in the Park Chicago, Milwaukee Pride, Chicago Pride, and Chicago Market Days the last two years but if you've seen it, you know why.


It will be the battle of the bars as one of these establishments will be chosen to be the host for the official Out in the Park after party. Immediately following the Six Flags event that evening, one bar will host the official after party with appearance by Raja, winner of season three of RuPaul’s Drag Race, back in the city. Also attending famed fashion designer and club kid Traver Rains, co-founder HEATHERETTE and Chicago’s own Trannika Rex.


“If you've ever been to Boystown, you know Scarlet can throw a party,” Rex, emcee of this year’s event, told #Boom. “There really isn't another bar that is taking over stages in the Midwest like we have at Out in the Park, Milwaukee Pride, Chicago Pride, and Market Days the last two years but if you've seen it, you know why. In Milwaukee Pride we brought Cazwell and he performed in the middle of a bunch of people in penguin suits throwing out beach balls while I paced the runway. It's nonsense to the thousandth percent. You're gonna have fun.”


At each Friday night event there will be some free giveaways including two tickets to Out in the Park, drink specials and lots of fun.
