One of the highlights of Volvo Snowbombing’s ‘Greatest Show on Snow’ is the Metro Street Party. It’s always a random riot of fancy dress, great music and friendly nonsense… And it’s now got blue blood flowing through it!

Aisle Be There!

Hang out the bunting! Take the day off! Volvo Snowbombing will be throwing the biggest Royal Wedding Street Party anywhere outside the UK. The Metro Royal Wedding Street Party will be turning a little piece of Austria red, white and blue and in true street party tradition closing the main street of the alpine village of Mayrhofen, decking it with The World’s Longest Bunting (a world record attempt perhaps).

We’ll be asking Snowbombers to bring their own ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ to make the flags! There’ll be souvenir cups and plates, and lots of food (from Iceland) on trestle tables.

Trestle tables will line the streets with traditional British bites (Iceland’s ‘Party’ range, naturally). There’ll even be souvenir cups and plates, which just like the real ones, you can keep at the back of your cupboard for 20 years before proudly handing them down to your kids. Or put them on Ebay.

Wedding Tackle

The fancy dress theme for the day of the Street Party will be attending as either a member of the wedding party or a guest! This could be Kate or Wills (we’ll have masks you can wear), Prince Charles (we’ll have ears you can wear) or a dignitary like the Archbishop of Canterbury or a World leader or military type or as a celebrity guest like Elton John, Dizzee Rascal and Lady Ga Ga for example… Or even a fictional character that you think William or Kate would like to be at their big day!
