Love was in the air –figuratively and literally speaking! A very successful party for the day of the hearts was held last February 21, 2015 at the Stadion Krommedijk luxury lounge, Dordrecht in the Netherlands. Organized by the all talented Fil- Dutch Community Drechtsteden (FDCD),  this years theme was white and red. It was maybe a week later than Valentines day but nevertheless the lounge was beautifully decorated and meticulously created to add to that alluring ‘Cupid’ sphere that dominated the evening.

Guests from all over Netherlands stormed the hall in their stunning attires, mostly red, ready to  swing and dance the night away. They all knew too well that this will be once again a great saturday night party. Formerly known as FCC Dordecht, FDCD  have been doing this yearly event for the last 13 years. And everybody knows , their party is always a topper. And true to that, this year’s celebration was no exception.  Seemed like a ‘gathering of the eagles’, famous faces showed up to grace this celebration and ready to let loose. It was  the place to be …to see…and to be seen.

The lounge was jam-packed with party enthusiasts dancing to the music, jumping to their favorite beat, teen agers trying to show off their dance tricks on what little space left, laughing, giggling , hugging and not to forget the picture taking.  

This memorable night has to be documented,  the cameras kept on flashing from all directions. These amusing scene kept on going  while some few enjoyed feasting on these awesome site enjoying their favorite drinks while stomping their feet and nodding that head to the beat. Every soul was in tune to the rhythm of the night.. it was an electrifying!!! for the lack of words.

A very vibrant evening, everybody were having the best times of their lives! It was a night filled with laughter, dancing, friends getting together and getting wild in a nice way… the party was just smashing!!!!! There was no doubt, this was again a Valentines party that everybody will be talking about the whole year through.
