Next Star Party

December 30th & 31st

Hey, it may be the dead of winter, but join us for our next star party and ring in the New Year under the stars! Don't settle for the fake glitter of Las Vegas or New York. At GMARS, we have the real glitter and glimmer of the shining stars above.

GMARS star parties begin on Friday and wrap up Sunday morning. Be sure to join us for the potluck Star-B-Q on Saturday afternoon (roughly 90 minutes before sun down). We provide the dogs, burgers and fixings. You provide a sidedish, dessert or beverages!
