This man dressed as Shrek knows what’s going on.

The world is a wonderfully strange place and we have proof of this: a Shrek themed raves will be happening in St. Louis on December 10 at Red flag (3040 Locust Street, RedFlagSTL.com). Yes, this Shrek.

These touring parties have been all the rage in big cities lately and the novelty has finally caught on in the Midwest.

What’s the point of a Shrek rave? Well, go ahead and have a good time. The whole party is Shrek themed but wearing a costume is optional. Dress up as Shrek if you want. Or dress like Fiona if you want. Or paint yourself green if you feel it. Or don’t dress at all. Nobody cares, everyone is here to have fun.

Why Shrek? Well why not? Some… BODY once told us he was very popular.

If swamps and ogres aren’t your thing, another traveling dance party will take place in St. Louis the same evening. A Dolly Parton themed disco dance party will be held at Delmar Hall and they promise an event where you can get your groove on to “Dolly Parton, Kacey Musgraves, Orville Peck, Shania Twain, Miley Cyrus, Cher, Whitney Houston, The Chicks, Madonna, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow and many more.”

So which one will you choose? Do you want to be a All Star with ETix or do you want to be a Island in the Stream with Ticketmaster? Look deep within yourself to decide. When you close your eyes, do you see horns or rhinestones? Either way, you can’t go wrong.
